Thompson, T. (2007). Embracing Reluctance When Classroom Teachers Shy Away From Graphic Books. Library Media Connection, 25(4), 29.

Embracing Reluctance When Classroom Teachers Shy Away From Graphic Books” discusses ways to encourage teachers to use graphic books. It discusses how teachers will be drawn to the idea that comics and graphic novels are popular and entertaining, and how struggling students find comic books and graphic novels less threatening. The article suggests that tone of the greatest benefits of using graphic books in the classroom is the way that the pictures in the genre model visualization. Researching the topic of using graphic books in the classroom will yield some findings for those teachers who need more evidence that the genre can encourage young readers.
