“Comics is a fun way of getting into the stories. Plays are not meant to be read but to be seen.”
- Ian McNeilly, director at National Association for the Teaching of English

VISUALIZING
THE CLASSICS

Researcher Therese Larsson writes in the manual Cartoons - As a Learning Tool four arguments for the place for comics in the classroom:

1

Comic's strength as an identification tool and thereby its ability to arouse emotions, something that is crucial for learning to happen.

2

Within the broader concept of text; reading comics stimulates both the right and left hemispheres. The right brain processes images while the left is processing the text.

3

Comics provide a fertile ground for the understanding of foreign cultures.

4

Through color and shape it may be easier to attract reading and facilitate understanding of what you want to tell. The more senses you use, the greater the efficiency of learning. Researchers also point out that reading must be pleasurable and that it is of great importance that educators support students early in reading more actively.

Why should we read?

“Read not to change the world or to be a better person, but simply to know, to become, yourself. But that, as I argue throughout this book (How to Read and Why), is why we should read, and why we should read only the best of what has been written.
