Analyzing and Remixing Free Digital Comics in the Secondary Classroom 

Previous research has found that resources such as comic books and graphic novels can be used to encourage reluctant readers to read. These resources are readily available, but can be costly. Some comic books, such as those that first published in the 1940s, 50s, and 60s, were not copyrighted, or the copyright has expired, and can be freely used for projects. This presentation will discuss how free digital comic books can be modified using free graphical editing software to encourage students to read more, critically view messages in the text, consider historical elements, and remix to create new works.
