Using Graphic Novels in the Classroom

Demystifying Graphic Novels–Article

This brief article discusses using graphic novels in the classroom as a bridge to literacy.

Graphic novels are more than a bridge though. They are significant both for students to learn about the genre and for their themes and value as literature.  My 11th-grade classes are currently reading Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi.  This is my fourth year teaching this book and it’s one of my favorite units.
