Hacking Graphic Novels: 8 Ways to Teach Higher-Level Thinking with Comics and Visual Storytelling (Hack Learning #25) (Paperback)
Too many of our kids struggle with reading and writing
Now, you can help us end illiteracy and unlock the love of reading and writing in all learners, with the power of graphic novels and comics.
Teaching with comics increases engagement, and the ultimate value is in helping your students look with care, see possibilities, consider alternatives, ask nuanced questions, show their thinking, and bravely tell stories they would not have told in any other medium.
Best of all, even your most reluctant readers and writers will engage enthusiastically with your lessons and content.
Hacking Graphic Novels offers new ideas and practical tools for teachers of all subjects, grades, and experience levels with sequential art. Shveta Miller, a teacher leader and global advocate for teaching with comics, shows teachers how to:
- Guide students to look at visuals slowly with curiosity, open-mindedness, and intention
- Develop independent learners who explore the possibilities and real-world applications
- Encourage students to think, process, and express their understanding of complex systems and ideas
- Help students escape the comfort zone and productively struggle in the growth zone
- Use close reading and close looking for writers to inspire comprehension through storytelling
- Inspire colleagues, administrators, families, and students with the power of visual texts
