On October 5, 2017 New York Public Library partnered with New York Comic Con to expand educational programming, lectures, and panels. Claudia McGivney, Head of Academic Engagement for Stony Brook University Libraries was invited to present on lesson planning and use of graphic literature for academic engagement. Panelists discussed strategies for employing the use of graphic literature within the classroom and were able to walk attendees through adapting their methods for various curriculum levels.
Presenters discussed their curriculum, readings, and external resources, such as the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund, for infusing graphic literature into their classroom spaces. The panelists also explored graphic literature use to expand the scope of pedagogy surrounding literacy and story telling in the classroom. Panelists explained how graphic literature provides an alternative space for students to explore culture, gender, identity, politics, religion, social experience and other topics. The Trustees room became “standing room only” as different perspectives for multiliteracies and graphic literature were examined and discussed through the panel and an enthusiastic Q&A session.
