CBLDF’s recent groundbreaking survey offered concrete evidence that teachers and students are embracing comics as valuable tools in the classroom. Across ages and demographics, the study showed who are using comics, what comics they’re using, what obstacles comics face in classrooms, and a path forward for how educators and the industry can work together to advance the format in the education environment. Based on that, here’s the top 11 comics being used by teachers in the classroom, and the free resources available for you to utilize these comics too! CBLDF has provided most of the resources included, but any outside ones credit the publisher or site that developed them.
