Cartooning Teen Stories

Comics are perfect for working with young people. More than just sci-fi and superheroes, they can help young people to explore the issues affecting them and to express their own ideas. Introducing the comic participation model, this practical photocopiable resource explains why comics are so relatable and engaging for young people. It looks at the different applications of comics, from simple doodle games to communicate one-on-one, to panel comics that relay entire stories. Five sample comics created in collaboration with young people are included, covering issues such as mental health, sexuality, trauma and bullying. There is also a practical how-to guide in comic form for creating a comic on any subject regardless of artistic ability, and accompanying session plans and worksheets that can be adapted to suit the needs of any individual.
