Pop Culture Classroom -What We Do

What We Do

  • Curriculum – Our debut curriculum, Storytelling Through Comics (STC), is an exciting literacy and arts program that introduces students to comic book culture and promotes their artistic and literacy skills using comics. So far STC has been taught in schools, after-school programs, summer programs and public libraries throughout the Front Range. In a little over three years, over 3,000 students have completed STC and created their own comics!
  • Community Outreach – Pop Culture Classroom conducts fun, educational activities at community events like PBS Kids Fest, the Denver Maker Faire and Hauntings at the Hangar (Wings over the Rockies), among many others. We also work with community organizations across Colorado to provide educational resources to students and educators. 
  • Denver Comic Con – Each year, we provide opportunities for students, parents and educators to engage in the pop culture community at Denver Comic Con through the Pop Culture Classroom Kids Laboratory, Experience the Comix program, the E.D.G.E Gaming and Development area, and more than 300 hours of educational sessions offered over the Con weekend.
  • Professional Development – We instruct and support educators on the use of pop culture in the classroom as a tool for engaging, educational enrichment. Pop Culture Classroom’s professional development opportunities include Denver Comic Con’s Educator’s Day, the Page 23 Literary Conference, graduate courses, plus many more.
  • LEAD With Comics – The Literacy Education in Adult Detention (LEAD) With Comics program is a program for incarcerated young adults, helping to improve their literacy and art skills using comics and graphic novels.
  • Workshops – Pop Culture Classroom is dedicated to providing high-quality, all-inclusive and custom-designed workshops for schools, districts and outside conferences throughout the year. Find out more about upcoming workshops here.
