Help Us Write Our Own Comic Books!

My students need the TOON Into Comics Genre Study collection so we can learn how to write and illustrate our own comic books!

My Students

Someone once told me that no one hates reading because those who claim to just haven't found the right book. Those words rang true the day I introduced the small comic book section of our library. My students love them! Please help us study them and write our own with the TOON into comics genre study!

My students are excited about reading and writing, especially comics.

They have been writing their own books this year and have been successful but I want to give them a unit of study that they will love. Our school doesn't have the budget for these extra genre studies and I want to make sure I am giving them everything they deserve when it comes to instruction and exposure.

My Project

It is my job to expose my students to all of the opportunities available to them. We may have a future Stan Lee in our class. So many of my students have so much potential and it is my job to get them to realize it. If we were to receive these materials, students would study comic books and write their own for an entire writing unit. They would be able to write comics during their writing stations and that would probably extend into mini-writing units throughout the year as well. The books that we receive will not be locked away when our unit is done but students will be able to enjoy them in independent reading as well as guided reading after we finish. The benefits of this project are tremendous for writing and reading. My students need a collection of graphic novels including both individual titles and small sets to use as an introduction to the graphic novel genre.

I want my students to be able to study and read and write using comic books because they will think that is fun.

When learning is fun, they are a million times more engaged. That kind of attitude toward learning builds a child that will be a lifelong learner and that is what I want for my students.
