Additional Course Details: 

From the medium's origin in the Early 20th century's interwar years, comic books have allowed minority and under-represented communities to make their voices heard and their stories told. Starting with the 1938 debut of Superman - a literal alien adopted by prototypical heartland Americans - immigrants, religious and ethnic minorities, and women have found colorful and fantastical ways to share their experiences. This course will explore the creative expression of some of those other voices of comic books.

Additional Course Details: 

Welcome to English 810S! In this course, we'll think about how to integrate teaching writing with other literacy skills like making multimedia, reading, speaking, listening, and viewing. We will focus on composing writing and multimedia works, although it is difficult (and even undesirable), to attempt to fully separate these literacy skills and practices. 

We’ll learn about how English teachers meet the needs and interests of a richly varied population of students. We will review many English teaching standards, construct and critique teaching documents, and discuss and apply the work of master literacy teachers and theorists.  

Working collaboratively, we will examine and compare philosophies of English teaching and learning, and we will develop approaches to writing and literacy instruction. We will discuss theoretical, pedagogical, and practical ideas for teaching writing in large and small groups, engage in reading and composition exercises, produce and practice instructional activities and assessments, and evaluate teaching approaches. Successfully completing this course (along with English 892) will help you recognize and affirm literacy skills and practices, and to consider how they can help your future students write, comprehend, describe, analyze, and evaluate various texts.
