Valuing the Visual: Tips for Teaching Graphic Novels and Comic Books
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.
