This unit will expose your students to a variety of reading material. Graphic books are a great way to teach inferring using the pictures in the book. This sequential art narrative unit was developed for second graders, but it could be easily modified to suit first or third grade students as well. This unit includes the unit rationale, essential questions, CCS addressed, learning objectives, lesson plans, handouts, website resources, and a rubric. The unit was developed with certain graphic books in mind, which are outlined in the lessons. However, the materials and lessons included can be used and adapted with any comic or graphic book. In this unit, students will write their own short comic page or story.
