Using Graphic Novels to Teach High-Level Thinking with Shveta Miller – Easy EdTech Podcast 152

In this episode, educator and author Shveta Miller joins to unpack the idea of using graphic novels with students to teach high-level thinking.  You’ll also hear about how to balance consumption and creation as well as activity ideas, cross-curricular connections, and more.

This week’s episode is titled: Using Graphic Novels to Teach High-Level Thinking with Shveta Miller and I am very excited to unpack this topic with you. I first came across Shveta’s work from an Edutopia post. I’ve guest blogged for Edutopia periodically for about 9 years now, and love to explore their resources. She had a post all about today’s topic so I reached out and asked her to join today.

You’ll hear all about graphic novels, comic strips, activity ideas, cross-curricular connections, and more.
