If you are using comic books and graphic novels in your classroom, check out this article I've written for the Colorado Reading Journal. In this article, I share some resources, strategies, and activities I used in my own high school classroom for teaching students comic book conventions. I also share resources for reading and writing comics that can be used in classrooms. If you're not a high school teacher, not to worry. These resources, strategies, and activities can be easily be adapted for middle school and elementary school use.
