About

This blog is intended to promote the use of graphic texts in literacy classrooms with young adults. Teachers, students, media specialists, parents, writers, artists, and other interested parties should feel free to participate in commentary and discussion. Texts are reviewed for content, quality, and possible curricular implications. Lesson planning ideas and activities are linked and archived. This site will become a one-stop, all-encompassing resource to not only introduce but also implement and evaluate the use of graphic texts to promote literacy in the 21st century and beyond.

    Hey there,

    I just found this website and I had to speak up. I’m a grad student over at UGA working on my MAT in English Ed. I’ve been a comic book reader since I was a little kid and I know I want to bring them into my classroom (once I get one). I’d love to pick your brain about how you first started teaching them, how the administration reacted, and so forth.

    Feel free to email me or what have you. Nice website by the way.
