Using Graphic Novels in Education: Barefoot Gen | Comic Book Legal Defense Fund

Using Graphic Novels in Education: Barefoot Gen | Comic Book Legal Defense Fund | Graphic novels in the classroom | Scoop.it

"This month, we take a closer look at Barefoot Gen by Keiji Nakazawa, translated by Project Gen (Last Gasp of San Francisco, 2004). Barefoot Gen is considered one of the most important anti-war manga ever written. The series focuses on the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and the aftermath of the Pacific War." 

dilaycock's insight:

A great teaching resource. A number of schools in NSW use Barefoot Gen as an HSC related text in the Area of Study: After the Bomb.

War Brothers: The Graphic Novel

“In this graphic novel version of War Brothers, artist Daniel Lafrance captures the terror, poignancy, and hope expressed in the text. In the best tradition of the graphic novel, this one brings an immediacy and power to a story that will sear itself into the mind of every reader.”

dilaycock's insight:

An amazing, and disturbing, GN based on the true story of a group of boys in Uganda who are kidnapped to become soldiers of the LRA (led by Kony). Excellent text for discussion of child soldiers and the issues that come with it.

Using Graphic Novels in Education: Persepolis | Comic Book Legal Defense Fund

Using Graphic Novels in Education: Persepolis | Comic Book Legal Defense Fund | Graphic novels in the classroom | Scoop.it

"Persepolis is an important classroom tool for a number of reasons. First, it is a primary source detailing life in Iran during the Revolution and the Iran-Iraq War . Readers of all ages get a glimpse of what life is like under repressive regimes and relive this period in history from a different perspective. It also begs detailed discussion of the separation of church and state. Furthermore, this is a poignant coming-of-age story that all teens will be able to relate to and serves as a testament to the power of family, education, and sacrifice."

The Children’s Literature and Reading Special Interest Group of IRA has taken a look at some of the newly published graphic novels this year and provided descriptions and teaching ideas to use in classrooms or to recommend for summer reading.

Let's stick to calling graphic novels a format, not a genre. Varied use of the latter only causes confusion.

KS3 Reading - Experimenting with Comics

Dr Mel Gibson "leads a workshop with Year 9 pupils, to increase their awareness of the wide range of comics on offer for boys and girls of all ages. Keen to help the school develop their use of comics and graphic novels in the classroom, she runs a training session with English teachers Lynne Smith and Faye Robinson. We return to the school one month later to assess whether comics have boosted reading in general, and see if they've proved to have real educational value in the classroom."
