April 7, 2013

Lapp, D., Wolsey, T., Fisher, D., & Frey, N. (2012). Graphic Novels: What Elementary Teachers Think About Their Instructional Value. Journal Of Education, 192(1), 23-35.

Graphic Novels-What Elementary Teachers Think About Their Instructional Value focuses on elementary school teachers and their attitudes concerning the use of graphic novels in the classroom. The authors present a survey of 60 teachers who were asked about their use of graphic novels in teaching and the availability of graphic novels at their schools. They provide a brief history of graphic novels as a popular genre evolved from comic books, discuss the appeal of using them as a motivational device for students who may be struggling with reading, and analyze why teachers may or may not incorporate graphic novels into their curriculum.
