Graphic Novels for Lower Readers

My students need graphic novels for my English language learners (ELL) and lower level readers.

My Students

My students need to increase their reading habits. I have issues gaining interest with my English language learner (ELL) student population when it comes to reading. Many ELL students complain that there are no books to read at an easier reading level. As a result, many do not read during silent reading time.

My ELL population and lower level readers need graphic novels so they can develop good reading habits.

By having books that are of high interest, I feel like this will help my reluctant readers have interest in reading.

My Project

In my classroom, I participate in the reader's workshop. I expect my students to have silent sustained reading for 10 minutes a day. This is very difficult for my lower level readers and ELL students. Many of my students tell me that there are no graphic novels in my classroom.

I need graphic novels for my ELL and lower level readers so they can participate in the silent sustained reading.

By having graphic novels, I should be able to reach some of the reluctant readers that feel intimidated by chapter books. I feel that graphic novels will keep them engaged and feel accomplished at the end of their reading time.
