CORE CURRICULUM STANDARDS

We want teachers to be able to introduce a comic or zine project into their own curriculum and utilize the resources that we are offering to help make NOCAZ a great place for young people to express themselves! We have reviewed the core curriculum values as listed on corestandards.org, and have compiled some ways that a zine or comic writing project can integrate into your curriculum!

These are not the only curriculum values that a project of this nature could fulfill, but just a few! If you decide to include a comic or zine project into your curriculum in a different way, please let us know! Send us an email with your thoughts or contributions to nocazfestival@gmail.com
