Do you love comics? I know that I do. I have been using comics for the last few years to engage my students in variety of topics: literacy analysis, critical thinking skills, current events, and seeing how comics fit in a historical context. I have seen an increase in student engagement with reading since that time.
My students yearn for the opportunity to read comics and graphic novels in my classroom.
There is a buzz around school for the comics class.
Students will read the graphic novel V for Vendetta to learn more about a totalitarian governments. After learning about how totalitarian leaders rise, reading V for Vendetta will allow students the opportunity see inside how a totalitarian government may actually function and how one may, in fact, fall.
I have used V for Vendetta examine totalitarian governments and students have found it engaging.
Students are engaged with the story and compare and contrast what they read in the book to real life events. Along with that, students are able to identify patterns and relationships and make connections between the book, movie and real life events.
