NWP Annual Meeting Session: 21st Century Literacy and the Graphic Novel

I attended this session November 19, led by Belinda Foster and Anastasia Betts. They offered insightful rationales for incorporating graphic novels into the curriculum as well as multiple useful resources and a current list of graphic novels currently being used effectively in middle school and high school classrooms. Some information below may be incomplete since I am just blogging using my notes from the session. I will try to come back here and correct/fill in gaps later! GREAT SESSION!

Graphic Novels:
American Born Chinese by Gene Luen Yang
The 9/11 Report: A Graphic Adaptation
The Invention of Hugo Cabret
Secret Identity
Same Difference and Other Stories by Derek Kirk Kim
Pride of Baghdad
Baghdad Burning

Resources for Teachers:
101 Best Graphic Novels
Going Graphic by Stephen Cary
