Because our first workshop was so successful in 2018, we’re doing it again! This 2-day workshop will introduce teachers to the history of French-language comics and vocabulary needed for textual analysis, as well as address how to create language learning activities based in this kind of authentic text content so as to respect the artistic medium and the goals of the language classroom. Activities are designed to enrich language teaching from the beginning through advanced levels, including attention to AP and IB themes.
The workshop will take place in the reading room and classrooms of the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library and Museum, and all materials (books) and lunches will be provided. The majority of sessions will be conducted in French. The workshop will be facilitated by Ohio State University faculty and staff. Sessions will be 9:30 am until 5:00 pm.
Repeat participants are very welcome. There will be some repetition in curriculum in that we will again have general bande dessinée vocabulary and history sessions, but activities will be updated and the specific books that we will read and discuss in their entirety will be different.
