More Graphic Novels Equals a Happier Reading Time

My Students

I teach an amazing group of students in the promise zone of the West Philadelphia area. I'm so privileged to teach a mixture of students. I teach students who have learning disabilities as well as gifted students who all love to read. They are a very talented bunch and are rising to the academic challenges that I place before them every day, as well as demonstrating their talents in other extracurricular activities such as art, music, and dance. They are my most astonishing group thus far.

My Project

My students have a designated reading time throughout the day and love to read graphic novels. Currently we have six graphic novels for my class to share. Having more of a variety of novels will ensure that every student is reading and will even decide to read when they have some down time after assignments. My students are happier when they are reading graphic novels. They are more engaged and willing to write more about the novel. They use fidgets to stay focused as well as enjoy the scent of aromatherapy in the background while they are reading. For fun I allow my students to use the dry erase markers and boards to make pictures to go along with the novels.
