As teachers, we’re always looking for new ways to help our students engage with texts. James Bucky Carter and the contributors to this collection have found an effective approach: use graphic novels!
Carter and his contributors tap into the growing popularity of graphic novels in this one-of-a-kind guidebook. Each chapter presents practical suggestions for the classroom as it pairs a graphic novel with a more traditional text or examines connections between multiple sources. Some of the pairings include:
The Scarlet Letter and Katherine Arnoldi’s The Amazing “True” Story of a Teenage Single Mom
Oliver Twist and Will Eisner’s Fagin the Jew
• Young adult literature and Marjane Satrapi’s Persepolis
• Dante’s Inferno and an X-Men story
• Classic fantasies (Peter Pan, The Wizard of Oz, and Alice in Wonderland) and Farel Dalrymple’s Pop Gun War
• Traditional and graphic novel versions of Beowulf
These creative pairings open up a double world of possibilities—in words and images—to all kinds of learners, from reluctant readers and English language learners to gifted students and those who are critically exploring relevant social issues. A valuable appendix recommends additional graphic novels for use in middle and high school classrooms.
