We are pleased to announce that Pop Culture Classroom’s (PCC’s) comic issue, Discovering Literacy Through Comics, has been featured in the Spring Issue of the National Council of Teachers of English’s (NCTE’s) Voices from the Middle!
This is exciting news because it highlights an important comic which illustrates the power of using comics as a teaching tool in the classroom.
The comic was written by our Education Director Illya Kowalchuk and Education Program Manager Adam Kullberg, with art by Jay Peteranetz.
Each page of the comic is specifically designed to pinpoint a way in which comics easily engage readers to facilitate learning.
The Reader’s Guide is also an interesting and helpful companion to the comic, which helps teachers better understand how to implement comics into their curriculum.
The NCTE is a premier organization and platform for the advancement of literacy and education in English. It is a great honor to be featured in their magazine, allowing our comic to reach a wider audience and have a greater impact on the promotion and development of literacy, and the use of language to construct personal and public worlds to achieve full participation in society, as per the Council’s mission.
PCC is proud to partner with NCTE to support teachers and enhance the powerful work already happening in today’s middle school English classrooms.
