Quick Overview

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
primary 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.
