Mr. Amara from Boston MA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

POW! ZAP! READ!

My students need literate, all-ages graphic novel classics that develop vocabulary, exemplify author style, and demonstrate concepts like narrative structure.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

The 3rd-5th grade students at my school exemplify what's great about this country. They are the product of different cultures with hardworking families that understand the value of education. We're an urban school with a sizable portion of our community categorized as low to middle-class income families.

It's a school goal that we want our students to achieve as dynamic readers.

Innovative reading programs that include the visual literacy of all-ages, genre-wide graphic novels feature into our vibrant curriculum.

My Project

Students live in a visual world, and graphic novels are a genuine way to build visual literacy. Whether a reluctant reader, an English Language Learner, or a motivated young author-to-be, graphic novels are the respected cousin of comic books and offer a dynamic facet to any classroom.

An English Language Arts class without graphic novels to read seems almost like a math class without rulers and compasses, or social studies without maps.

What was once seen as whimsical support material is now essential to developing developmentally appropriate concepts in a transdisciplinary method. Beyond super-heroes, graphic novels express the human condition.
