Bolton-Gary, Cynthia
Online Submission, US-China Education Review B 4 p389-395 2012
When students are faced with learning abstract contents, creating meaningful teaching and learning opportunities is a challenge for many educators. Concerns for how to get students to connect theoretical constructs and apply them to the "real world" is especially critical for those students studying to be teachers. This descriptive study illustrates how comics can facilitate students' learning of overarching concepts, such as cognitive development, motivation and information processing. (Contains 4 figures.)
