Comics are a staple of popular culture around the world, and research on comics as tools for education shows the possibilities that comics offer educators. Yet the research on the use of comics in primary and secondary education is still scarce. Therefore, we are collecting suggestions for chapters for an edited collection that addresses the need for scholarly work on comics as a tool for educational practice. This collection addresses an audience of primary and secondary school teachers, librarians, parents, preservice teachers, teacher educators, and others. Chapters could include literary analysis of comics’ potential for teaching, as well as studies of classroom activities and teacher/student experiences. Possible subjects include, but are not limited to:
- The use of comics in teaching various school subjects: History, Mathematics, Geography etc.
- Perspectives on curriculum and syllabus.
- Using comics for inclusive education.
- Cross-curricular/Interdisciplinary school work with comics.
For any questions on a particular topic for the collection, please do not hesitate to contact the editors.
