FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
White River Junction, Vermont, December 8, 2021 – For many, learning to read can be a struggle. What are the five keys to learning? How does the brain learn to sound out written words? Why was writing even invented? What are the benefits of reading? How do comics support literacy? The Center for Cartoon Studies’ most recent applied cartooning comic book, How We Read: A Graphic Guide to Literacy is a charming, playful, and fascinating 32-page comic that answers these questions and more.
How We Read: A Graphic Guide to Literacy was written and drawn by The Center for Cartoon Studies graduate Daryl Seitchik, a cartoonist and teacher currently living in Vermont. She has taught comics workshops for children, teens, and adults throughout New England and has enjoyed expanding her reach through virtual classes on Zoom.
How We Read: A Graphic Guide to Literacy was published by The Center for Cartoon Studies and created in partnership with Student Achievement Partners, an organization that provides free, ready-to-use classroom resources that support excellent, standards-aligned instruction for all students.
