We are located in a college town in a rural area where a mix of families live and work. Our student body is diverse in terms of socio-economic opportunities and our families' ability to promote reading at home. Our school library is constantly bustling with students reading, working on homework, playing games together and socializing.
You never know what's going to happen on a given day at our eighth and ninth grade junior high.
Our students are smart, funny and always entertaining. They are enthusiastic about reading and their education in general.
The graphic novels on this list are highly sought-after by teens. Graphic novels encompass both fiction and nonfiction, fantasy and realism, and a variety of styles of storytelling and art. From romance to superheroes, students can read about their favorite topics in graphic stories. The graphic format engages reluctant readers because it offers more than just the words on the page. The art appeals to visual learners and the illustrations provide a context that can help English language learners glean meaning from the text.
Adding graphic novels to our library's collection will mean high-interest materials will be available to show students that reading doesn't have to be boring or too difficult to be enjoyable.
Teens love graphic novels, and graphic novels promote language and literacy among students who need the most support. Most importantly, graphic novels are fun to read!
