Comics, cartoons and caricatures are a good way to explore stereotyped perceptions of other cultures. They also provide pathways which engage learners in collaborative projects and dialogues.
The power of images stimulate participants’ fantasy and it is also useful to overcome language barriers for young people who have difficulties speaking the language of their environment.
Comics connect people. They are attractive and easy to follow because they consist of pictures which are very pleasant to read. Sometimes the story is made up only of drawings and sometimes it can also have written words.
Young people are used to read comics; therefore, we must consider it an educational resource and a learning strategy. Its use guarantees a better participation because youngsters feel safe, they can express their ideas, their suggestions, their objections and it is also a way to let their presence be visible.
