Ever wish you could have learned from something more engaging than dry old textbooks in elementary school? Love comics and new media teaching? Reading with Pictures, a nonprofit that has developed graphic novel textbooks that incorporate the Common Core Standards for grades 3-6, has a Kickstarter account – and you can help get some of their super-cool books published. This innovative and fun project makes learning a visual experience and could help grade school students get more involved in such subjects as Social Studies, Language Arts, Math and Science. You can help Reading with Pictures reach their goal by donating, and you get a free copy of the book with your donation. This is a great project to support for anyone who’s interested in education or writing.
