mindSpark Learning and Brink Literacy Project are beyond excited to announce a partnership, and to offer an in-depth six-week course centered on storytelling through the medium of comics.

Course participants will interact with celebrity comic creators, storyboard their own incredible tales and adventures as educators and work hand-in-hand with experts from both organizations to bring engaging storytelling back to their classrooms and students. All participants will also be given the chance to have their story added to a published anthology of super teacher stories!

Key Content:
