Would you like to see more of these?
With the great response we've received to our Visual Brainstorming posts (check out our April, 2014 posts especially), Comics in Education is wondering whether teachers might be interested in purchasing digital downloads of professional brainstorming notes based on poems and other short works most commonly taught in schools. As the school year draws to a close and educators are looking for materials for next year, these might prove to be a nice addition. I'm thinking that a fair price is 99 cents and they're better for you than a McDonald's hamburger or 1/5th of a Starbucks White Chocolate Mocha. Okay, maybe not the mocha.
Anyways, take a look and see for yourself.
As you can see from the images below, a lot of time and care go into each poem, with the poem itself being broken down stanza by stanza.
So, if you're interested, just let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org or fill out a contact form here. We look forward to hearing from you!
