Institute for Japanese Studies presents:
Teacher Workshop: Manga and Storytelling
Led by: Stacy Hannon
California State University –Chico
RSVP by June 1 - space limited
This hands-on interactive workshop will teach educators how to incorporate visual literacy concepts into the process of having students create their own original manga. Through these images, students can develop their own literacy, explore other cultures and ideas, and find and develop their own identity. Learn how any issue—personal, local, or global—can be developed into manga art through manga storytelling methods. Explore how these methods can be aligned to the curriculum standards.
- Free to educators.
- Lunch and professional development contact hours provided.
- No Japanese language or cultural knowledge needed.
Since the creation of the first manga magazine in Japan in 1874, manga has come a long way. After manga became a widely-accepted form of popular culture in Japan, it was exported worldwide and has become an international phenomenon. To complement the Manga at a Crossroads symposia and the World of Shōjo Manga: Mirrors of Girls’ Desires! exhibit at The Ohio State University, IJS will host a workshop for K-16 educators to explore manga and storytelling.
Co-sponsors: Institute for Japanese Studies, East Asian Studies Center, The OSU Department of Arts Administration, Education & Policy, Japan Foundation Center for Global Partnership, and U.S. Department of Education (Title VI).
