Event description

Description

Series Overview: Contrary to often-held conventional thought, graphic novels can be an excellent source of literary material when attempting to expand your students’ proficiency with close reading strategies, critical thinking, and visual literacy skills. Like traditional genres, they include characters, plot, theme development, and a hero’s quest. During this series, we’ll explore how graphic novels can provide opportunities to develop your students’ media literacy, teach essential nonfiction and fiction elements, engage students in high-level analysis and discussions, and foster your students’ enthusiasm for reading. You'll leave this series equipped with the necessary tools to successfully integrate graphic novels into your curriculum.

Session 1: Going Graphic

Description: In the opening session of this series, we will look at the research supporting graphic novels as a viable instructional genre. We will work on definitions and learn key graphic novel vocabulary. Towards the end of the session, we will explore literacy connections, delving deep into useful instructional strategies to implement in our classrooms.
