The Huffington Post on Comics Reclaimed for Kids by Kids and Educators
The Huffington Post reports on comics in curriculum, spotlighting CCS’s graphic novel Satchel Paige: Striking Out Jim Crow
Kate Kelly writes “Through the narrator’s eyes we experience the culture that not only barred African-Americans from playing Major League baseball but also kept them from sitting in the stands at baseball games played by white players. Through words and pictures, readers feel the incredible power of Satchel Paige and witness how he understood just how to play the crowd, play the game, and then leave quickly to keep on going to his next paying gig as a showman/Negro League player…As educators have struggled to compete for children’s attention with the new technologies and the graphic presentations of websites, they have come to realize that comics — graphic novels — are a great asset for school teachers and librarians. As a result, publishers are investing in producing these books on all types of subjects.”
“…we’ve shown students the process of researching these figures and selecting some compelling aspect of their story that can resonate with readers,” explains James Sturm, director and co-founder of The Center for Cartoon Studies.
