NY Comic Con Talk Follow-Up
This afternoon, I had the pleasure of speaking on a panel with Fuse #8's Betsy Bird & Matt Bird (her lovely & knowledgeable husband) on Graphic Novels: A New Literacy for Libraries, School, and Home. Betsy recorded the talk and I'll post a link here to the podcast when she makes it available for download.
I made 40 copies of my handout, and we ran out, which is both good & bad -- good to have 45 folks snapping up our materials, good that they thought enough of them to leave with them, rather than crumple them up into a ball, to be deposited on the floor. (Better still that we had so many attendees after our room assignment was changed!) Still, 40 handouts and 45 audience members meant that several of those delightful audience members went without. So, for them, and for those of you who couldn't attend but are interested in the materials we provided, here you go! Betsy is planning to post her handouts at Fuse #8; I'll link to the post once it goes live.
- Teaching Literary Devices with Comics, a lesson plan written by Nancy Frey and Doug Fisher, from the National Association of Comics Art Educators;
- Basic Comics Terminology, a handout contributed by Matt Madden and Jessica Abel (also from NACAE);
- My handout of links & articles, re-organized & updated!
