Limited Capacity filling up

Graphic novels aren't just about superheroes. They include memoirs, non-fiction, minority voices, manga, and many other rich genres. A dynamic duo of a library media specialist and a graphic novel course teacher/literacy coach are here to answer all of your questions. This presentation explores: What makes a quality graphic novel? What makes the genre of comics its own unique art form? Can graphic novels make you smarter? How do graphic novels use panels, bleeds, perspective, realism, negative space, and texture to help tell a story? How can you use graphic novels to teach students the art of storytelling? Are they appropriate for independent reading? Summer reading? For ESL? What are some successful cross-promotional strategies for your collection? With a heavy emphasis on teens, this presentation also explores: How can you build a graphic novel collection with strong cross-curricular connections (including hot titles and core titles)?
