My Students

Do you remember struggling through Shakespeare in school? Feeling frustrated and wishing you could read something else? Imagine how much better it would have been for you if you would have had the text in the form of a graphic novel. My students need Romeo & Juliet by Shakespeare the graphic novel.

My students are 8th grade middle school kids from NY.

They like technology, music, comic books, magazines, and spending time with their friends. They like to belong to something - for example I started a book club this year and 40 out of my 98 students come each week. It helps give them a sense of belonging that they don't get outside of school. They like attention and need to know that people (teachers/peers) care about them.

My Project

Using the graphic novel will help my students visualize what they are reading. This will not only help the lower learners, but will enrich the higher learners as well. I plan on using these books with all three of my 8th grade classes (about 100 students). My students will use this graphic novel as a motivation to write their own graphic novels. These novels will help my students understand and comprehend the text which will ultimately make them feel successful in their academic endeavors.

To read or not to read??

I want my students to read!! Donating to this project will help many children become successful in their reading abilities. The graphic novel will enrich many students on many different levels.
