Comics Strips as Classroom Material

One of the first examples of comics in the classroom happened with the "Texas History Movies" comic strip.

We shot this video of comic book historian Weldon Adams' presentation on the topic at the "Comics in the Classroom" panel presented by the Institute of Comics' Studies at Wizard World Texas:

"Re-Canonization: Transforming the English Curriculum with the Graphic Novel"
