Graphic Novels and Individual Rights

My students need the combination of visual input and textual input that a graphic novel provides. In this way they are better able to access and absorb the information.

My Students

My 8th grade students are both excited and apprehensive about their Social Studies experience. During the year, we focus on historical thinking skills that will be transferable and allow all students to succeed as their education continues at higher levels.

My students have unique strengths and challenges, but they have one thing in common.

They are all willing and eager to work and learn when they encounter an environment that combines high expectations with understanding, patience, and support. They want to take pride in their work and their school and are looking for someone to show them the various ways that they can succeed. In my classroom, there are students with a wide range of experiences and abilities, but I want all students to feel supported in whatever they attempt throughout the year.

My Project

Students in 8th grade are learning about the U.S. Government and individual rights and the challenge is to connect distant events and documents to the modern day. By using the "Race in Incarcerate" graphic novel my students will see how a current event or situation develops in stages over time.

Investigating the Ethical Dimension an important historical literacy skill and this graphic novel will be the key that unlocks that skill for my students.

The combination of visual images, powerful text, and a meaningful content that connects directly to my students' experiences will have an impact far beyond my specific classroom.
