"This book puts into practice what we’ve long known but often ignored: one picture is indeed worth a thousand words! The chapters offer an up close and practical look at how images in all their many forms can be used to motivate reluctant readers."
"The literacy I want my students to possess involves more than simply being able to read and write. Just as vision entails more than seeing, being visually literate means that students can interpret and reflect upon images as well as words. Frey and Fisher's collection of essays will help you help your students develop the literacy they need for this brave new century."
"This book is a cogent reminder that an expansive defition of 'literary text' is necessary if we are to reach out to all students in our classrooms. A highly useful resource for teachers who wish to explore using graphic novels as part of their curriculum."
My course is so overloaded as it is I cannot ask for students to adopt another full text (though I found it to be excellent!)
We need a nonprint media literacy class. This would be perfect for that.
This will prove a useful reference book for teachers at all levels. It discusses how a wide range of texts, including comics, graphic novels, political cartoons and films, can be used to develop children's thinking skills. Each chapter is supplemented with a very useful bibliography that will point the interested reader towards further reading, and there is wealth of tips and techniques for introducing non-traditional texts into the classroom.
