Capt'n Eli: Ian Carlson's Teach Comics

High school English teacher (and lifelong comic book geek), Ian Carlson, writes a fantastic blog called Teach Comics which is a great resource for educators who wish to incorporate comic books into the classroom.

His most recent post is about the curriculum developed by Laura Richter for Jay Piscopo's The Undersea Adventures of Capt'n Eli graphic novel series.

Read Ian's blog at this link.

"As a teacher who believes in the potential of comics as a teaching tool I applaud Jay and Nemo Publishing on their efforts to bring the message to the masses. Capt'n Eli is a fun, light-hearted read, and coupled with the thoughtful lesson plans of Laura Richter these books would make a great addition to any classroom." ~ Ian Carlson, Teach Comics
