PIM Pedagogy: Toward a Loosely Unified Model for Teaching and Studying Comics and Graphic Novels
Carter, James B.
SANE Journal: Sequential Art Narrative in Education, v2 n1 Article 4 Sep 2015
The article debuts and explains "PIM" pedagogy, a construct for teaching comics at the secondary- and post-secondary levels and for deep reading/studying comics. The PIM model for considering comics is actually based in major precepts of education studies, namely constructivist foundations of learning, and loosely unifies constructs inherent therein with other available frames and frameworks for studying comics. As such, the article fills a dire need in the scholarly literature on comics pedagogy and paves a way for those who seek to teach comics courses in the future but who need direction and for those who seek to study/read comics deeply but do not know how to do so effectively.
