Bringing the Power of Maus into the Classroom

A Workshop for Teachers

Maus cover cropped

How does one teach Maus? The recent removal of Art Spiegelman’s Maus from the eighth grade curriculum by the McMinn County School Board in Tennessee has propelled this graphic memoir into the national spotlight. Why was it banned and how can educators use this moment in their classrooms? This interactive program by Dr. Gary Weissman will help educators develop strategies to use Maus as a powerful pedagogical tool.
