Books, Boys and Breakfast

My students need graphic novels for our morning book clubs.

My Students

Can graphic novels be used as a strategy to capture student interest in reading, develop comprehension skills required for traditional and visual texts, and improve writing competence? I believe so!! What better way to capture the interest of boys than a bigger and better comic book!

Our third grade usually consists of 100 to 110 students who come from very diverse backgrounds and often very low poverty levels.

Finding ways to reach all of our student's needs is always a challenge. My plan is to have a boys book club with no more than nine or ten students that would meet twice a week before school starts each morning.

My Project

Graphic novels provide a rich visual format in a structure that is appealing to all learners. These art-rich books help readers understand the structure and flow of a story, teach visual literacy, and motivate children to want to read more. Reading, as we know, is absolutely critical to children's success in school and beyond. Since graphic novels draw many of my students to read for pleasure, adding a variety of novels to our collection along with sets to use in book clubs is a surefire way to keep them reading, while reinforcing or teaching important literacy skills along the way.

My hope is that through graphic novels I can target struggling readers who would benefit in increasing their fluency, learning about different genres and South Carolina history.

Many educators are motivating their students to read through this very popular genre and I believe I can do the same with my students. My goal is to increase student learning and success in literacy. Graphic novels are just the way to do just that!
