A study by the National Institute of Health on the effective use of "comics" in education. It is not light reading but well worth checking out if you are considering using comics in your classroom instruction.

Can Science Fiction Save the Liberal Arts? (Asks The New Republic) | Pop Culture in Education | Scoop.it
Both the literary and science fiction worlds have come out in the past few weeks with poignant tributes and accolades for recently deceased Scottish writer Iain Banks. The remembrances from both quarters are very well deserved, and very rare.

Science fiction to the rescue of teaching?

Science fiction to the rescue of teaching? | Pop Culture in Education | Scoop.it

The popularity of books such as The Physics of Star Trek is making lecturers and teachers consider a new way of teaching science - through blockbuster movies. Science fiction movies are well known for breaking physical laws, and although Scotty, the chief engineer on Star Trek, frequently protested that he "could not break the laws of physics", the spaceship itself frequently did. This has not stopped books that explain the physics behind the series becoming extremely popular.
