Abstract

Sequential art of all kinds lends itself to cross-curricular work within schools, colleges and beyond. Most typically, this draws in art and literature in a number of different ways, depending on the chosen emphasis and who the lead department or member of staff is. I have come across a range of approaches to using the medium and will flag up a few examples from around Britain in this article, but will concentrate in the latter part of the article on a very intensive ‘Theme Day’ that took place at Driffield School, East Yorkshire (www.driffieldschool.net)
