My Students

Eager to learn and share their knowledge, my students love to share their voices through writing. My students come from different low-income areas of Columbus. These students all receive a free lunch. My exuberant readers are vigorously reading all of the graphic novels I have. Their love for reading is contagious and inspiring.

My Project

My students need more graphic novels to enhance their vocabulary and increase their love of reading.

My students came into my classroom this year excited to see that I have graphic novels in my classroom library.

During my Open House, students were already making a list of the graphic novels they intended to read. Now that school has started, my students are reading at a tremendous rate.

My graphic novels have been flying off the shelves. My exuberant readers are vigorously reading all of the graphic novels I have. Their love for reading is contagious and inspiring.

Reading is an essential skill for all students, and I promote a love for reading in my classroom. Graphic novels can dramatically help improve reading development for my students struggling with language acquisition, including special needs students, as the illustrations provide contextual clues to the meaning of the written narrative. They can provide students with clues to an emotional context that they might miss when reading a traditional text.

English Language Learners will be more motivated by graphic novels and will more readily acquire new vocabulary and increase English proficiency. This project will improve our classroom library by increasing the number of graphic novels for students to read in school and take home.
