9781412936842: The Graphic Novel Classroom: POWerful Teaching and Learning With Images

A secret weapon for engaging adolescents

Could you use a superhero to teach reading, writing, critical thinking, and problem-solving? While seeking the answer, secondary language arts teacher Maureen Bakis discovered a powerful pedagogy that teaches those skills and more. The amazingly successful results prompted her to write this practical guide that shows how to use graphic novels to:

  • Teach 21st-century skills, including interpretation of content and form
  • Promote authentic literacy learning
  • Grow learners’ competency in writing and visual comprehension
  • Motivate students to create in multiple formats, including images
  • Engage struggling as well as proficient students in reading

Review:

"This book shows without a doubt how a graphic novel can foster deep thinking, vibrant discussion and multiple opportunities for writing with a purpose."--Rachel Hanson, Writing Coach & Gifted Language Arts Teacher (05/11/2011)

""This book provides a great framework for structuring a graphic novel English language arts class. The practical rationales for using these texts, as well as the activities included, do meet the need for a book aimed at ELA in instruction with graphic novels.""--Stergios Botzakis, Assistant Professor, Adolescent Literacy (05/11/2011)

"High school English teacher and graphic novel advocate Maureen Bakis offers educators a guide for using comics as teaching tools, based on her own experience. She examines the compositional elements of comics using several volumes as examples and demonstrates how they can be used to teach different concepts and skills."--Diamond Bookshelf (05/01/2012)

'This informative teacher's guide demonstrates how McCloud's Understanding Comics can be utilized in class and offers tried-and-tested ideas for the classroom, taking select graphic novels as an example'--Roswitha Henseler

""This book is very readable and makes a clear case for using graphic novels. More importantly, itprovides readers with examples that they can use in their classrooms. It s very practical, yet challenging.""--Douglas Fisher, Professor (05/11/2011)"

""Even if you don t want to (or can t) teach graphic novels, this book offersso many wonderful ideas adaptable to other texts about how to get students thinking about what they read.""--Cindy A. Spoon, Basic Reading Teacher (05/11/2011)"
