Class Experience

To explore the genre of the graphic novel
To consider how text and image affect the reader
To think independently about the issues raised in the readings
To verbally communicate any interpretations, questions, and information about the the readings
to the possibilities. Today we see many classics being remade into graphic novels (To Kill a Mockingbird, The Diary of Anne Frank, The Giver), and my goal is to introduce some of the middle age classics in graphic novel format.
There will be reading each week, some novels are longer than others. Students will be asked to follow along with a reading guide and prepare answers to the discussion questions for our class meetings.
There are five books on the reading list. They can be located at your local library or bought used on Amazon. All of them have e-versions as well. All five brand new in book format on Amazon would be about $50. We will start right away with the Golden Compass on our first day-- if you cannot find a copy please let me know. Golden Compass Graphic Novel, Volume 1 (His Dark Materials): adapted by Stephane Melchior Coraline--Neil Gaiman and P Craig Russell Olympians: Athena: Grey-Eyed Goddess— George O’Conner OZ: The complete collection: Wonderful Wizard/Marvelous Land-- Adapted by Eric Shanower and Scottie Young A Wrinkle in Time: Adapted by Hope Larson
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
These novels range in age recommendations from 9-14 . I encourage parents to review the texts if they are concerned about appropriateness for their child.
