Whether using graphic novels or comics to explain cultural differences, history, or art, there are many educational factors that sequential art can teach, in classes from the high school to the college level. Christina Angel (Metropolitan State University of Denver), Robert Weiner (Texas Tech University), Hannah Means-Shannon (Georgian Court University), Carrye Kay Syma (Texas Tech University), and James Bucky Carter (Washington State University)-the editors and authors of Graphic Novels and Comics in the Classroom: Essays on the Educational Power of Sequential Art-offer a lively discussion of the value of sequential art in and for education. This roundtable will focus on both the methodological and pedagogical approaches from the book, discussing the process involved in putting together the volume. The book's contributors will give their unique perspectives on the educational potential of using comics in the classroom.
