Abstract
This definitive book presents the newest research linking graphic narratives and literacy learning, as well as the tools teachers will need to make comic book projects a success in their classrooms. The Comic Book Project (www.comicbookproject.org) is an internationally celebrated initiative where children plan, write, design, and publish original graphic narratives in diverse media and formats. In one accessible resource, Bitz presents a comprehensive program that is just as fun for teachers as it is for students. Teachers will learn how to incorporate socially relevant materials and instruction into daily activities, how to differentiate instruction across the K–12 curriculum, and much more. This informative, hands-on book:
  • Advances a creative approach to teaching core literacy skills, including narrative construction, spelling, publication, and assessment.
  • Includes adaptable lesson plans and examples of professionally published and student-created comics.
  • Details classroom applications and resources to help teachers launch their own comic book clubs.
