NEW!! Visual Storytelling: Drawing, Comics, and Animation
Take a visual journey in teaching innovative ways to use art, drawing, comics and animation to enliven your lessons and engage students.
The world is becoming a more visual place, and our students are natural storytellers. Illustrated as a comic, this course will share some engaging and accessible ways you can incorporate drawing, comics, and animation into your English Language Arts and Social Studies curricula. Whether or not you see yourself as an artist, we encourage you to read this comic anyway - you just might change your mind!
