Students will learn to think critically to determine the similarities and differences.
Aside from being an English teacher, I am also an avid comic book reader. Comics are a text to be analyzed just as much as novels; I have learned that a "text" involves more than just novels and can include films, video games, books, pictures, and more. Using costumed (or sometimes un-costumed) characters, readers can engage in thorough discussions.
Learner progress is assessed through participation
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Content may be PG or PG-13 as trailers from the Avengers and Justice League are shown. Class is learner led as well which may lead students to want to freely discuss comic book content which might contain mature content.
