Multimodal Literacy and Comics Program Moscone Convention Center
131 (N)
Description :

We live in a world where the ideas around "literacy" are continually shifting due to the constructions of various modes of communication and the transfer of information. These multimodal messages have been affecting and socializing our culture for many years but, there has been as severe dearth of proper training in reading these images.

The medium of comics has been gaining a great deal of ground regarding the introduction of reading and writing skills in terms of being a "gateway" to "real" literacy. However, studies have shown that sequential art and comics are a totally different and hybridized mechanism for the transferal of narrative. Also, this unique and misunderstood medium is a perfect method of actively teaching notions of multimodal learning and comprehension of literacy in the early development of our youngest citizens.

Comics and illustrated stories create a very powerful portal into our students' understanding how images affect them, how to interpret them, and how toutilize visual communication for their own personal empowerment and expression.
