Dr. Cathy Leogrande


Le Moyne College, Syracuse NY


Presenting from upstate New York, USA


Presentation in English

Target Audience(s): Classroom teachers

Short Session Description (one line): Using Comics & graphic novels (non-fiction & fiction) with global themes & characters to foster intercultural awareness & cross cultural understanding

Full Session Description (as long as you would like):

Comics and graphic novels have seen an increased popularity in recent years. One way that teachers have used them is to help students gain greater and more authentic information about other areas of the world. This session will present best practices for integrating comics and graphic novels into ELA, social studies and science curricula and lessons. Topics addressed will be authenticity versus appropriation of culture, preparation to discuss sensitive and controversial issues, and global connections with authors, illustrators and other creators.
