These breakout sessions feature practical tips on how to use comics in your classroom setting. David Rojas (education consultant) will demonstrate how analogizing Batman as Hamlet, or Bruce Banner/The Hulk as Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, can ignite new interest in classic literature. Nancy McCann (Comics Unlimited) and Jesse McCann (New York Times bestselling children's book author) will consult on choosing the best comic books for your classrooms and libraries. Anina Bennett (Boilerplate, Frank Reade) will discuss how best to utilize historical fiction to teach real history and inspire critical thinking. An all-ages comic book goodie bag for your classroom (limited to 50 packs) will be available for participating educators after this panel. In addition, a free online 70-page The Secret Origin of Good Readers companion resource book [PDF] and other fun, useful materials are available at www.night-flight.com/secretorigins, courtesy of XMission.com.
