Dr. Gibney's Thoughts on Graphic Novels in the Classroom

Dr. Nancy Gibney, UDM reading and language arts methods professor, on graphic novels in education:

“Allowing students to read and create graphic novels and comics in K-12th grade classrooms will enable them to better understand and examine complex ideas due to their engaging, interesting and unique format. This site contains many helpful resources that will introduce you to the exciting world of graphic novels providing lessons and activities on how to incorporate them into your teaching.”
