The Green Knight Should Be Green: Graphic Response to Literature
Broz, William J.
English Journal, v99 n3 p57-63 Jan 2010
Using examples from college and high school students, the author describes how asking students to respond to literature using a variety of graphic media can enhance their interpretive skills. Some students who don't like to write essays or who seemingly aren't good at writing essays enjoy making graphic response to literature and are good at it. They create not only imaginative and sometimes well-executed artwork but also artwork that represents focused and insightful interpretations of the literature. (Contains 9 figures and 1 note.)
