Teacher Comics: Best practices for teaching “controversial” material

Please notice, during the past two days I’ve thrown quotation marks around the word “controversial.” I don’t find My Friend Dahmer controversial in the least.¬†As a teacher however, I have to understand where others might… and as I said yesterday, politically it’s important for teachers to cover their bases, especially in how tenuous our positions can be at times.

The alternative reading was, by the way, Bless the Beasts and Children by Glendon Swarthout. Not one parent requested the alternative text.

Hey, welcome back everybody… or I’m saying “Hi, I’m back” and hopefully you’re welcoming me? I guess that’s how it works.

I’m rerunning a comic I posted a few weeks ago today. It leads directly into the next four weeks worth of strips. I promise, it’s important.

Ohio Schools Magazine is reprinting some of my comics about the PARCC Assessment in their April issue – I haven’t seen copies yet, but my colleague at school snagged one and was nice enough to send this picture to me. If you’re a teacher in the Buckeye State, be on the lookout!
