Description: This presentation will introduce participants to bringing comics into the classroom as a means of creating personal narratives on social justice issues relevant to the community with the integration of ELA standards and writing. Through the uniting of visual images and text, participants will explore techniques and strategies for creating comics, including but not limited to, clarity and content, character and world design, while incorporating text and speech and elements of narrative. Participants will leave the session with a unit outline and lessons that aim to foster a sense of inquiry and exploration in students while integrating literacy in the visual arts.

Instructor: Amanda Price, Clarke Central High School

Amanda Price began her path toward a career in art education as an undergraduate at the University of Georgia studying studio art and art history. She went on to complete the Masters of Teaching program at Armstrong Atlantic State University and began teaching middle school art at Effingham County Middle School. Price taught there for three years before accepting a job at Clarke Central High School and returning to Athens. Teaching art in Athens helped lead her to her interest in studying art education as a method of communication, particularly in the field of social justice. In the summer of 2018 she completed the Red Clay Writing Summer Institute. As a Red Clay Fellow, Price researched and explored using visual imagery, particularly graphica, as a method of communication for students. Recently, she has focused on creating units that help develop student voice, whether through personal identity or social issues. Price has presented at the Red Clay Writing Project Conference and the National Art Education Association Conference. Price was also featured in the Athens Banner Herald for her work with comics, social justice, and literacy.
