More than Words: Comics as a Means of Teaching Multiple Literacies
Jacobs, Dale
English Journal, v96 n3 p19-25 Jan 2007
Historically, comics have been viewed as a "debased or simplified word-based literacy," explains Dale Jacobs, who considers comics to be complex, multimodal texts. Examining Ted Naifeh's "Polly and the Pirates," Jacobs shows how comics can engage students in multiple literacies, furthering meaning-making practices in the classroom and beyond.
