My Favorite Book
Please excuse this break in the lesson plans... I promise it is for a good reason.
For anyone interested in using comics in the classroom (which is hopefully everyone who visits this site), I cannot recommend Terry Thompson's book "Adventures in Graphica: Using Comics and Graphic Novels to Teach Comprehension" (Stenhouse) enough.
While the book is billed for the 2-6 grade level, I've found that it is very translatable to high school. Thompson really knows his stuff, and provides a plethora of useful strategies and activities to engage the reader and writer in all of our students.
