Abstract:

"Comic books and graphic novels, known collectively as "graphica," have long been popular with teenagers and adults. Recently, graphica has grown in popularity with younger readers as well, motivating and engaging reluctant readers who often shun traditional texts. While some teachers have become curious about graphica's potential, many remain confused by the number of new titles and series available and unsure of its suitability and function in their classrooms. Drawing on recent research and his own success using graphica with elementary readers, literacy coach Terry Thompson helps teachers navigate this medium and shows how teaching with graphica fits into literacy frameworks and correlates with best practices in comprehension, vocabulary, and fluency instruction."--Jacket.
