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
When I was in graduate school, I was a TA for a graphic novel class and it opened up my mind 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 lesser known titles that encourage girl power!
There will be one graphic novel to read each week, some 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.
Students must have copies of that week's book-- can be hardcopy or e-book. These books all have e-versions except for "Hicotea." If you cannot access Hicotea, please let me know and I will make sure you get a copy. In many cases the e-books are cheaper and there are many used versions available. 9/20: Drama--Raina Telgemeier 9/27: Brave-- Svetlana Chmakova 10/4: Primer--Thomas Krajewski 10/11: When Stars are Scattered-- Victoria Jamieson 10/18: Act--Kayla Miller 11/8: Anne of Green Gables: A Graphic Novel-- Mariah Marsden 11/15: Swing it Sunny-- Jennifer Holm 11/22: The Witch Boy-- Molly Knox Ostertag 12/6: Anti/Hero-- Kate Karyus Quinn 12/13:PrinceLess: Save yourself-- Jeremy Whitley 12/20: Drama--Raina Telgemeier 12/27: Brave-- Svetlana Chmakova
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
These novels range in recommended ages from 8 to 13. I encourage parents to review the texts if they are concerned about appropriateness for their child.
