Reading With Pictures

I recently found out about Reading With Pictures via a link that led me to them on Kickstarter.

RWP probably have one of my favorite missions ever. They’re an organization dedicated to promoting literacy and literacy education through comic books in school classrooms. Their specific mission from their website reads;

Reading With Pictures is a nonprofit organization that advocates the use of comics in the classroom to promote literacy and improve educational outcomes for all students. We work with academics to cultivate groundbreaking research into the proper role of comics in education. We collaborate with cartoonists to produce exceptional graphic novel content for scholastic use. Most importantly, we partner with educators to develop a system of best practices for integrating comics into their curriculum. At Reading With Pictures, we get comics into schools and get schools into comics.

Anyway, I thought it was really cool, and felt like helping put the word out on ’em. Check it out.
