The Comic Project

Project: Non-funded ProjectProjects

1/01/1731/08/17

In this project, pupils at a school in North-West England will engage with a comic artist and writer during one semester and create a comic to take away home at the end of the project. The aims of the project are to explore to what extent and how pupils' engagement with comic creation and reading relate to:
1. the progress in reading/particular aspects of literacy syllabus
2. the feeling of self-esteem, confidence and other emotional states
Together with Dr Nicola Ingram, I act as consultant on project design and implementation development and impact assessment, as well as project ethics.
This project is realised in collaboration with a local theatre, local comic artist, and relevant staff at the school where the project is taking place.
