Graphica: An Untapped Resource in Media Literacy Education.

NCTE Commission on Media member Peter Gutierrez will be presenting on this topic at two upcoming events. He tells me: " The goal is to share pedagogy and practical tips for using graphic novels, comics, and manga as a hub/content platform from which to explore various media as well as the principles of media literacy itself. "

1) January 31, Fordham University, Graphica in Education Conference, New York City. Keynote speaker includes NCTE author/Webinar leader James Bucky Carter.

2) February 7, New York Comic Con. 5:15pm, room assignment TBD. http://www.nycomiccon.com
For more information on either of these presentations, or on the events themselves, Assembly members may contact him at fiifgutierrez@gmail.com. Many educators may not know that they are entitled to a free Professional Pass at NYCC.
