Rogers, Aimee A.
SANE Journal: Sequential Art Narrative in Education, v2 n1 Article 3 Sep 2015
This article presents how one 8th-grader, Mallory, made meaning with "Amulet: The Stonekeeper's Curse" by Kazu Kibuishi. Data was collected via a think-aloud procedure, a retrospective think-aloud, questions specific to the book, and an interview. The data analysis indicates that Mallory was able to use a breadth of reading strategies, applied to both the visual and textual modalities, in order to make meaning with the graphic novel text.
