Christine Lucas's curator insight, April 1, 2013 7:18 PM

such a great resource. Graphic novels are quite foreign to me and websites like this make incorporating them into classwork less daunting.

Great website or info on graphic novels

Using Graphic Novels in the Classroom | Learner Log

Using Graphic Novels in the Classroom | Learner Log | Graphic novels in the classroom | Scoop.it

Yildirim (2013) writes, “The increasing popularity of graphic novels has transformed it into a powerful medium of expression. Once regarded as only a means of amusement lacking literary insight and merit, graphic novels have evolved into a respected and well-regarded genre of literature which deserves a permanent place in the literary world” (p. 122).

dilaycock's insight:

Despite the increase in popularity of graphic novels, the literature and my own research suggest that teachers' lack of familiarity with the format is hindering the uptake of graphic novels as classroom texts.

Comics and Graphic Novels in Education

Comics and Graphic Novels in Education | Graphic novels in the classroom | Scoop.it
I remember reading books that had long descriptions. Some writers do love to describe. JRR Tolkien, for instance, is one of those fantasy gurus who created a world that is beyond our . . . no, not imagination—the conceptions of the elves, ogres, goblins, etc. had already existed inside our small vocabulary boxes before Tolkien's words pierced through our thought bubbles and gave birth to an Orc and a world beyond our, yes, expectation.

“Innovation can be expensive so it is helpful when you know that what you are doing is driven by demand, that people are potentially interested in it. We didn’t develop this for the sake of having something new, but as a way to add more value that people wanted to what we were already doing.”
dilaycock's insight:

The Classical Comics versions are great. If you want to try before you buy, go to their website, where various Acts from a number of plays can be downloaded.

A Graphic Novel That’s Like Harry Potter, But With Computers Instead of Wands | Underwire | WIRED

A Graphic Novel That’s Like Harry Potter, But With Computers Instead of Wands | Underwire | WIRED | Graphic novels in the classroom | Scoop.it
The premise Secret Coders may sound familiar to fans of young adult literature: Two students discover a mysterious school hidden just beyond the limits of their humdrum lives, and are ushered into a world of secret knowledge and power that they never imagined possible. However, unlike Harry Potter's Hogwarts, the school in this graphic novel teaches a form of magic that readers can learn right alongside the fictional students. That's because they're not learning how to levitate objects or charm mythical beasts—they're learning how to code.
dilaycock's insight:

Gene Yang helps address the current call for students to be taught coding.

Maus Index

Maus Index | Graphic novels in the classroom | Scoop.it

"We chose a graphic novel for study to stimulate readers to explore new forms of literature. Graphic novels appeal both to adults and teenagers and use themes and subjects important to many. The choice of Maus was based on its critical acclaim, its artistic excellence, and its universal themes.

This website provides teachers and students with approaches to reading and studying the novel through a host of on-line resources."

dilaycock's insight:

Fabulous resources from teachers at Melbourne High School.
