Comic Books and Other Hooks: 21st Century Education

Book Launch Party & Signing: Comic Books and Other Hooks: 21st Century Education

North York Teacher, Scarborough Author, Releases New Book on Comic Books and Literacy.

Manfred J. von Vulte, Dep. Head, Northmount School (North York) and Scarborough resident, releases, Comic Books and Other Hooks: 21st Century Education, in Canada today. Amazon, Barnes and Nobel, and other global retailers debuted it in January. ABC, FOX, NBC, and CBS posted on news education feed.

"Comic books, robotics, industrial arts, instrumental music, cooking, camping, fine art, and other genuine experiential initiatives need to be examined by today’s schools. The empty promises of video games and their ethereal claim to genuine experience has produced a significant student body that is resigned to mediocrity, and virtual encounters that provide neither the authentic feeling of victory, nor the reviled sting of true defeat. Students are looking for the genuine, in their teachers, lessons, and activities. 21st Century education by comic book or by hook will rest in the power of professional dynamism and the authentic teaching of practice, process, and prolonged proficiency."

Book Launch Party: Comic Book Lounge and Gallery, 587A College St. Toronto, Ontario, M6B 1G2, Friday, February 28, 2014. 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm.

Book Signing Event: Chapters, Bayview Village, Saturday, March 1, 2014. 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm.
