This is a pretty common admission. Teachers will often tell me that they're unsure of how to go about finding a good, readable, pedagogically-suitable, age and content- appropriate graphic novel for their students.

I get this one a lot as well. Many teachers don't have a problem with the genre, but can't necessarily articulate to a parent its inherent value over traditional genres.
This is difficult to argue with and parents seldom do.

This is the most common admission teachers make to me and it usually comes near the end of the conversation. Some don't really understand how to teach the genre.
Work alongside your students and grow with them.
