Improving literacy is challenging when learners are not engaged with the material. Creating comics engages students and encourages them to explore vocabulary, summarize information, and contextualize what they learn in a creative way. In this webinar, Shelly Terrell will share various free comic creation tools, as well as classroom activities that help improve literacy.
