Using comics and graphic novels in the library and classroom

Here are a list of some lesson plan ideas for using comics and graphic novels in the classroom. While I haven't used all of them with my students, I've used several and others are on the list to use when I can find the time to fit them in.

The first is a list of resources for using graphic novels from eMints.

There are several online versions for students to create their own comic strip:

Read Write Think offers several lessons, but for student use would be the planning sheet for students when creating their own comics. This is another activity for using storyboards when teaching.

The Center for Children's Books also has a list of links that would be helpful for using comics and graphic novels in school.
