Graphic novels are rapidly gaining in popularity with students, as well as with librarians and teachers. The quality and choices of graphic novels available for the classroom are rich and diverse. Did you know that both Newbery and Caldecott honors have been awarded to graphic novels? Comics are "real" reading!

Teachers are beginning to see that research and practice support the use of graphic novels in the classroom. How? Graphic novels:
--motivate and support beginning, struggling, and reluctant readers
--support English Language Learners
--enrich the skills of accomplished readers
--improve student attitudes toward reading
--teach visual literacy
--stimulate higher level thinking

I created "Graphic Novels are Elementary!" to make using graphic novels in your classroom easy. This freebie includes sample pages from my line of "Graphic Novels are Elementary!" products.

This freebie includes:

--Tips and tricks for reading graphic novels together and reading graphic novels aloud

--A 3-page, full color visual presentation on "How to Read Comics"

--"Teaching With Comics: Analyzing the Elements"
(Discussion questions for use specifically with graphic novels)

-- "Panel to Panel" student activity page -- Students use critical thinking to describe what happens between panels

-- "Graphic Novel Book Report" student activity page -- A graphic organizer to help students analyze graphic novels

--Eight full-color graphic novel vocabulary cards

Thank you so much.
