Need to read Persepolis, looks great, I think I'd prefer using this as opposed to the novel The Kite Runner.
dilaycock's comment, April 19, 2012 7:21 PM
Great idea. The images provide potential for a whole new level of discussion. Check out my tags and you'll find some other stuff on Persepolis. BTW, there is also a graphic novel of Kite Runner. Thx for your comment. Am going to let the Legal Studies teachers at my school know about your Scoop.its :)

Giving Boys A Love Of Reading | Comprehension | Scoop.it
Boys are different when it comes to reading. Yes, some boys devour books from day one, and some girls never find the joy. But, overall, high school boys have fallen nearly 20 points behind their female peers.

Boys Don't Read, Except When They Do

Boys Don't Read, Except When They Do | Comprehension | Scoop.it

"Even when I hated to read, I was hungry for stories. I found them in places that weren't teacher-approved, but I found them just the same. Video games and television shows were filled with plot and conflict, character and emotion. I read Choose-Your-Own Adventures and X-Men comics and Nintendo Power Magazine and Zoobooks and I made up my own stories about the villains and the heroes, the far-flung places and wild animals. I never thought of anything I did as reading, and I never thought I was training myself for a life as a writer. But I was."
