Graphic Novel Unit
- Google Apps™
It’s hard to find a student who doesn’t LOVE reading a graphic novel! There’s just something about seeing the story come alive that makes reading extra fun!
In this 160+ page unit, we leverage students’ enthusiasm for graphic novels and meld it with research and informational writing (to teach the national standards). The result is this LOW PREP, print and digital resource!
This month-long graphic novel unit will guide you through teaching your students all about graphic novels, their unique elements and how to convert traditional text into a graphic novel format. Students will learn how to read and analyze graphic novels for their literary aspects then create a research-based graphic novel biography.
****Although this resource contains lessons focused on how to create a biography graphic novel, you can easily adapt the lessons to teach your students how to convert stories, personal narratives or other types of informational text into a graphic novel format!*****
