Hey everyone, here’s my September comic from Ohio Schools Magazine. It’s some advice to new teachers.
A rather long comic about where my head is round now in regards to teaching non-fiction. Two notes:
– Here’s where I pulled that statistic. While I don’t disagree with the findings, I hope the comic illuminates a little why I find implementing them frustrating.
– In the last panel, Henry is asking for “a witch book.” He’s referring to The Witch Saga by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor, of which we read the first book, Witch’s Sister, to the boys. The author is mostly known these days as the writer of Shiloh but I think the Witch books are due for a resurgence in popularity soon. They’re uniformly fantastic
Every year, I do a Halloween drawing of my family on social media. This year, I took a page from one of my favorite Stephen King books (‘Salem’s Lot is definitely in my Top Three). I was a little dubious about this being THE Halloween drawing, since it doesn’t directly connect to the season, but whatever!
