ASCLA Institute: Using Comics to Promote Literacy at All Levels [$] Preconference/Institute Hilton Chicago
Salon A
Description :

As many librarians, teachers, and parents will attest, kids LOVE comics. But in this era of high-stakes testing, comics aren't just a refreshing change of pace for students. Increasingly comics are taking on deep subjects and being used to teach the CCSS with an emphasis on both verbal and visual literacy. Making sense out of reading with the aid of visuals may be the best way to become a lifelong reader, one who knows how to read for pleasure and for information—a reader who loves to read. Join Françoise Mouly, art editor at The New Yorker (where she has been responsible for more than 1,000 covers) and editorial director of TOON Books, as she gathers famed cartoonists, including Gene Luen Yang, Ivan Brunetti and Lilli Carré to discuss the importance of visual literacy in our increasingly visual culture .

Two free TOON Books (with accompanying lesson plan/activity sheet) to every attendee!

Division members: $169.00, ALA Members $235.00, Non ALA Members $255.00, Students $99.00
