In light of the recent rediscovery and revaluation of the comic book, the programme presented in this book unveils to pupils in the second stage of primary school and lower secondary school the techniques of a fascinating expressive medium, which is at the same time inspired by the languages of the visual arts, theatre and literature.
Working with these expressive codes opens up scenarios where pupils’ cognitive processes can be stimulated and their creativity developed; it also facilitates remediation for learning difficulties.
The book is split into 12 units, which activate pupils in the following areas:
• drawings
• polyphony
• words
• framing
• caricatures
• layout
• perspective
• the story
• gestural art
• identity
• movement
• study methods.
Each unit contains an introductory part with methodological notes for the teacher; a description of supplementary workshop activities which can be used to practice and develop the skills learnt; and worksheets for the pupil which can be used individually or in groups as necessary.
