For years kids have stuck comic books in textbooks and avoided homework by going to the local comic store. Comic books and graphics novels were seen as, at best, recreational reading material. This, however, could not be farther from the truth! Emerging research shows that comics and graphic novels are motivating, support struggling readers, enrich the skills of accomplished readers, and are highly effective at teaching all subject areas, not just English. Join us as we explore just how crucial comics and graphic novels are to include in a class curriculum!
