It has been several years since I completed my Masters Degree - I have been able to put much of my learning to good use. I have managed to include several comics in my classroom over the past few years - I would like to include more. This wiki is an attempt to help us share resources and ideas - it has taken me a lot of research to find these titles - I have not been able to find any sort of complete "list" of titles that would make it easy - so here we go!
Please don't think comics are just for boys - many girls love them, and many boys would never read one. I teach a comic book course during a specialized session that our high school offers twice in a six day cycle. The students are allowed to choose from many different options - both academic and "fun". Whenever I offer the comic book session, it is standing room only and there are as many female as male students. I love being able to connect with my students in a different way other than the textbook - and it is something for which I have a life-long passion.
There are so many ways to open students' eyes to history - it can be great if Spiderman, Batman, and other characters can make it even more engaging for all of us.
