The Power of Graphic Novels

My students need graphic novels to foster a love of reading.

My Students

My school is in Texas with a high percentage of students living in poverty. Many of these children do not have books of their own at home, so they depend on the school to supply their academic as well as pleasure reading materials. Even though many of the children are living in poverty, they have a strong will to be successful in school. They don't say, "If I go to college", but rather, "When I go to college". I like to think that by providing the students with quality books to read, I am helping to lay the foundation that their future educational successes rest upon.

My Project

My project involves incorporating more graphic novels into the library collection. We currently have several graphic novels and they are always checked out. Students are always telling me they wished we had more graphic novels.

Even the most reluctant reader will pick up and read a graphic novel that peaks his/her interest.

The colors, the way the panels are arranged, and the over the top characters all help keep the interest of the reader. My shelf of graphic novels is always empty, and several books have a waiting list! The best way to create a lifelong reader is to find the right book for the child. For many children, this book is a graphic novel.
