Schoharie Crossing State Historic Site is extremely proud to announce that The Comic Book Project will be conducting a workshop at our site on August 27th from 3pm-6pm. The project is geared toward children in middle grades – 4th, 5th, 6th and Jr. High.
The Comic Book Project is a world-renowned literacy initiative that engages young people in the process of planning, writing, designing, and publishing original comic books. CBP engages children in a creative process leading to academic reinforcement, social awareness, and character development, then publishes and distributes their work for other children to use as learning and motivational tools. The project puts the creative control in children’s hands, then provides them with tangible evidence of their progress. By engaging youths in the creative process of brainstorming, sketching, plotting, designing, and finalizing original comic books, CBP enables students to become content creators, rather than mere information receivers.
