Do comics help in the classroom?


According to a study in the use of comics in classrooms, comics are being proven to show an increase of motivation in students along with better retention of knowledge, especially in the field of language learning.

Comics can facilitate a better understanding of complex required texts by serving as a preliminary reading activity and can extend the analysis of a classic work of literature by providing examples of derivative fiction or by making strong allusions to the classics¹.

Comics inherently have rhythm through the repetition of panels or elements of panels. Additionally, students can incorporate music into their comic story.
