The value of integrating comics in the classroom at all levels and in various subjects is now well-established and documented; a useful approach in comics-specific teaching is the making of comics themselves. Like film production, many of the facets of comics creation are intentionally invisible to the reader and challenging to get students to see-and even more challenging to get them to theorize. This panel of educators seeks to encourage teachers at all levels to enter this critical, theoretical space with their students by engaging the form itself, to help them better understand the language of the medium and to be stronger critical thinkers overall. Christina Angel (Metropolitan State University of Denver) and Hannah Means-Shannon (Comicon.com) will explore practical ways to make comics in the classroom. Susan Kirtley (Portland State University) moderates.
