Chun, C. W. (2009). Critical Literacies and Graphic Novels for English-Language Learners: Teaching Maus. Journal Of Adolescent & Adult Literacy, 53(2), 144-153.

Critical Literacies and Graphic Novels for English-Language Learners-Teaching Maus” presents an overview of the ways that teachers of students that are learning English as a second language can use graphic novels in their classrooms to help the students understand how language can work both for and against people. A discussion of the ways that graphic novels can be used to help students acquire an appreciation for critical literacy and to develop and draw on their multiliteracy practices, is presented. Graphic novels, including Joe Sacco’s “Palestine,” and Keiji Nakazawa’s “Barefoot Gen,” which are considered suitable for classroom instruction, are discussed.
