Bringing Comic Books into the Classroom

Jennifer Stone has been teaching for 16 years, with experience from first grade to middle school—and beyond, having even taught pre-service teachers and professional development.

She currently teaches fourth-graders in Georgia, and over the summer, she took a college-level course that introduced her to an interesting idea: Comic books have a place in the classroom! In fact, they can play a big role in helping kids learn, when used correctly.

As one of 10 grand-prize winners in the WGU Loves Teachers sweepstakes, Jennifer now has $300 that she can use to build up a fun and fantastic library of comic books, as well as buy some online subscriptions for her students to use on their devices.

Through the WGU Loves Teachers sweepstakes, WGU and Scholastic are awarding 10 $300 grand prizes and 100 $25 first prizes to thank teachers for their hard work and help them build up their classroom libraries and supplies.

Congratulations, Jennifer! Stay tuned to The Night Owl Blog—we have one more winner story to share with you!
