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.
