Comics and graphic novels are powerful educational tools. But what if you or your students have never read comics? Try my 3-page PDF on "How to Read Comics." It lays out the basics to get you started.
And here's a one-page version with a white background for easier printing. I know teachers have to horde color ink like dragons!
For older or more advanced audiences, I recommend Jessica Abel's excellent free resource, downloadable here.
Visit my Teachers Pay Teachers store for more graphic novel classroom resources!
