Persepolis Project: Graphic Novel
In this packet you’ll find the materials you need to guide students through creating a Persepolis-inspired graphic mini-story about an important event they have experienced. Here’s what’s inside…
“You, in Graphic Novel Form”: This handout describes the project, the three workshops, and the requirements.
“Workshop #1: The Event”: This handout guides students through an in-class workshop in which they choose the event they will feature in their project.
“Workshop #2: “The Character – You!”: This handout guides students through an in-class workshop in which they think about what they were like at the time of their featured event and consider how they will portray themselves in the piece.
“Workshop #3: The Supporting Cast”: This handout guides students through an in-class workshop in which they consider who else played an important role in their lives at the time of their chosen event and how they might portray these other characters.
“Putting it All Together”: This handout helps students think about how to design panels, represent dialogue and thoughts, etc. in their final project so they will have a consistent format throughout.
“Rough Draft”: This handout gives students a chance to roughly sketch in what will happen on the six pages of their story.
“Rubric: The Graphic Novel Project”: This page provides educators with one option for grading the project. It has been designed flexibly so that teachers can use their own point systems.
