Comic Book Project

Dan Pink, author of A Whole New Mind, recently wrote on his blog about the Comic Book Project, a literacy program that encourages children to use words and images to express issues they’re facing in their own lives. This seriously makes my heart sing.

The one-two punch of intrinsic motivation and self-expression has proven to be a powerful learning strategy. What’s more, says the Times, combining word and image appears to be especially helpful for struggling readers.
