dilaycock's insight:

I too share the author's ire that we are still having to defend the use of comics in the classroom. The theory is that things have changed - both the comics and the classrooms. In practice, however, we still have a lot to do in the classroom in terms of inviting the comics medium in.

‘Persepolis’ Restored to Chicago School Libraries; Classroom Access Still Restricted | School Library Journal

‘Persepolis’ Restored to Chicago School Libraries; Classroom Access Still Restricted | School Library Journal | Graphic novels in the classroom | Scoop.it

“This isn’t a book about torture, it’s a book in which torture occurs. I think it’s important to consider the book as a whole, and not fixate on a particular image—that image will look different when regarded as part of the story than when taken on its own. The question I would be asking is whether the story is told in a way that seventh graders can understand. I can’t answer that, but the Chicago curriculum committee said yes, at least initially.” (Brigid Alverson, School Library Journal)

"One of the most popular posts that I've published on Free Technology for Teachers is a list of ten free tools for creating comics online. I wrote that post three years ago.

There are so many comics creator apps available these days. Do you have a favourite? If we're talking freebies, I'd go for Comic Master. For paid apps, I like Comic Life.
