Everything I Know I Learned from Comics
Everything I know I learned from comics. No really -- everything. Not surprisingly, then, this e-book examines visual narrative as a form worthy of study -- not simply as a means of giving students material they find "easy" or "accessible" but as one whose structure, content, and history can illuminate for kids different ways of accessing, thinking critically about, and making meaning of the world around them. This resource gives special focus to teaching comics, graphic novels, and graphic poetry, and to the use of visual narrative with young learners. It includes a list of award-winning titles that teachers can use with their students, and discusses both trade publications and those specifically designed for students.
