Nov 15, 2019 4:30pm ‐ Nov 15, 2019 5:30pm

Credits: None available.

Standard: $6.99

Despite their continuous growth in popularity in and out of the classroom, graphic novels still have the reputation as not being on par with traditional texts. This presentation will breakdown why graphic novels should be considered “real” academic reading, illustrate the relevancy of their use in secondary curricula, and provide attendees with methods for staying informed of the newest titles.

Learning Objectives:
  • Participants will be able to articulate the relevancy of the graphic novel format in relation to various types of secondary education learners.
  • Participants will be able to describe various approaches to using graphic novels in the classroom in order to increase student learning.
  • Participants will develop personalized action plans for implementing knowledge gained from the session at their own institutions.
