Our local paper did a nice write-up on my comics in the classroom work.

Very cool! I wish I had a teacher that used comics when I was in school.

Thanks, guys, for the comments! It is very rewarding to see young kids get enthused about the comics making process.

Keep up the good work Andrew! You're doing the hard, thankless work that comics really need.

Kudos! I also teach art and kids never say no to comics (and once you pitch the literary side with "they make stories...they WRITE, they EDIT... most admins don't mind either!)

Elara,

Have you seen the graphic novel art exhibit at the Norman Rockwell in Stockbridge?

They will be having quite a few more educational programs too.

I wish I had graphic novel art exhibits close to me as well!...

Anyway, you're doing great things with your teaching. I hope to make educational programs one day, combining my biology and art educations. It's always nice to see that comics and education really do work in practice and not just in theory ^^

Have you ever checked out the biology comics of Jay Hosler?

Not yet, but I'll google for him ^^ Thanks!

edit: He really made some nice things. Especially the bee story. That looks really well drawn and very usable to explain certain things to children. I'll have to point it out to some biologist friends who work with insects ^^ I'm sure they'll love it!
