Getting Graphic: Effective Literacy Learning with Comics & Graphic Literature

This will be a great program for educators: BC Provincial Pro-D Day ̶ Friday, October 21, 2011

BCLCIRA and LOMCIRA invite you to: Getting Graphic: Effective Literacy Learning with Comics & Graphic Literature

In today’s multimedia world, students must read and navigate literature in many forms. The ability to un- derstand and utilize visually presented information is essential for learning in and out of school. Comics and Graphic Literature offer opportunities to combine the teaching of reading and the use of visual and critical lit- eracy skills in a way that fosters a love of reading. Participants of this conference will leave with strategies they can readily implement when they return to their classrooms.

Our Presenters for this Event

Dr. Margot Filipenko, Senior Instructor, University of British Columbia, will focus on strategies for reading, comprehending and interpreting visual texts using roles developed for literature circles with graphic literature at the primary and intermediate levels.

Kathie Shoemaker, Author/Illustrator, will address the process of creating graphic literature.

Jo-Anne Naslund, Instructional Programs Librarian, University of British Columbia, will address the criteria for the selection and evaluation of graphic literature for teaching purposes and independent reading.
