Graphic Novels to Spark Student Interest in Reading

My students need a collection of graphic novels by TOON books.

My Students

My students are English Language Learners who have a wide range of English language levels. They are students who are enrolled in general education classes but need support in developing their English language skills in order to excel in their other subjects. About 25% of the students in our school are English language learners.

In order to fully access the grade level curriculum, my students need support in speaking, reading, writing, and understanding English.

This will help them be their most successful in school and their future career paths.

My Project

Too often, students only read books that are required for their classes or chosen for them by teachers and parents. Some students learn to dread reading and think of it as something they just need to get through. I won't let that happen to my students!

I want to help my students fall in love with books just like I did in school!

I have a couple of graphic novels in my classroom library and my students love them. They enjoy the style of graphic novels and the illustrations help struggling readers make meaning of some words. I want to expand our classroom collection of graphic novels to support students' reading growth and build their excitement for new books.
