Learning from the comics

What a refreshing reading!  I thought the format was extremely effective.  I’ve never been a fan of comics, but I now have a great appreciation of the art of comics as well as their power to involve the reader in the subject matter.

Radio is often called “theatre of the mind.”  It is sometimes more effective than television because, if engaged, the audience uses their imaginations to fill in the blanks and the pictures that they create are more powerful than ones provided by video.  I can see that comics also  have that power.  I wish I had more drawing talent.  It would be fun to try to create some instructions for students in comic form.
