Graphic Novels: What Elementary Teachers Think about Their Instructional Value
Lapp, Diane; Wolsey, Thomas DeVere; Fisher, Douglas; Frey, Nancy
Journal of Education, v192 n1 p23-35 2011-2012
Survey methods were employed to learn more about teachers' attitudes toward graphic novels and how graphic novels are used in their classrooms. Questions explored participants' attitudes and actual classroom use. The survey research sought to determine if teachers are open to using graphic novels and the extent of their willingness to do so. Though teachers report willingness to use graphic novels and other graphica, they are limited in their attempts to do so by lack of instructional models, lack of graphic novels in the classroom, and their own level of comfort with the genre.
