A Visual History - Graphic Novels In The Humanities

A Visual History - Graphic Novels In The Humanities | learning design | Scoop.it

"Most English and social studies teachers no longer view graphic novels as simply "long comic books." The educational benefits of blending illustrations with narratives have been well established. But rarely do books come along that masterfully capture the dynamic, eye-popping power of art and history."

Peter Sampson's insight:

Love what well made graphic novels make possible for more visual learners.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, October 23, 2013 10:16 PM

If our students are visual learners are there resources we can use to help make learning more interesting? How about graphic novels? This post explores 'The Gettysburg Address: A Graphic Adaptation stating:
The stunning paperback uses "Lincoln's words to tell the whole story of America's Civil War, 1776 to the present." The book is thrilling in its account of regional rifts and in its pictorial precision on each page.

An additional history book is discussed and there are links to additional resources on the value of using visuals in subjects areas. If using graphic novels is new concept for you, or if you are interested in learning more about reasons why to bring them to your classroom, this post will be helpful.
