Let's Get Graphic
Let's Get Graphic: Incorporating Graphic Novels Into a Secondary Language Arts Classroom | Leann Boisvert
49 posts | 1 to read
Common Core standards in Connecticut impose a more specific curriculum that make it more challenging to engage English and Language Arts students, and graphic novels proved an effective way to maintain and draw students' interest.

So I‘ve never been much interested in graphic novels. I tried in my early 20s goth years b/c I wanted to be cool, LOL. But they just didn‘t appeal to me. But over the past few years, GNs have really taken off on Booktube, Litsy, etc, and I wanna give them another go. I did read Persepolis last year & enjoyed. But am looking for fiction recs now, strongly prefer ones by/about POC &/or queer folks. No horror or creepy shit. Suggestions, please, thx!

xicanti I‘m gonna give you some recs in another comment, but I want to start off by saying that I see a LOT of Littens who want to get into comics because they‘re popular but who struggle with the format because it‘s unlike the prose they‘re used to. I always, always recommend that they start with UNDERSTANDING COMICS by Scott McCloud instead of with some fiction. It‘s a good primer for how comics‘ visual language works. 3y
aartichapati I would recommend Isabel Greenberg and Tillie Walden! Will link to recs here. @xicanti gave me the same advice years ago when I started reading comics, though I did not take it, I admit. Just learned through doing, but I should read that book now and probably would appreciate it more! 3y
aartichapati Love this one by Greenberg, and her Encyclopedia of Early Earth 3y

aartichapati And love this one by Walden, a really lovely story! I hear her Spinning is also excellent. 3y
RealLifeReading I have SO MANY to recommend. I‘ll just make a post about it....! 3y
xicanti Now: recs, with the caveat that I‘m always a little unsure of whether what I find okay will actually read as creepy to someone else:

PHONOGRAM by Giller & McKelvie - about music and the magic of engagement. I love THE WICKED + THE DIVINE, a very queer series by the same creators, a bit more, but I‘m pretty sure it‘s creepy. Their YOUNG AVENGERS is also very queer and probably not creepy?
3y
xicanti NIMONA by Noelle Stevenson - heroes & villains. Lots of queerness.

ORANGE by Ichigo Takano - high stakes slice of life with a time travel component. TW for suicide.

STRANGERS IN PARADISE by Terry Moore - lots and lots of emotions. Also, girls in love.
3y
xicanti SILVER SPOON by Hiromu Arakawa - city kid enrols at an agricultural high school

GIANT DAYS by John Allison et al - slice of life at university. 1/3 queer.

THE TEA DRAGON SOCIETY by Katie O‘Neill - sweet all-ages fantasy about kids whose queer mentors help them bond with little dragons.
3y
alisonrose @xicanti Thanks for the tip! I don‘t think it‘s the format that was a struggle for me—I had no problem with it when reading Persepolis. It was more that I just didn‘t care as much about artwork and such, so that aspect of it didn‘t draw me in. (No pun intended, haha.) 3y
alisonrose @aartichapati @xicanti @RealLifeReading @vivastory thanks for the recs!! I‘ve definitely seen many of these around and have been interested! 3y
hes7 I really enjoyed 3y

The votes are in! The next #LetsGetGraphicMonthlyFeature is...🥁DEADPOOL! 👏🌮♥️ We‘re excited to spend the day gorging on all things Deadpool with you. No challenges! Just an all-day homage to everyone‘s favorite Merc with a Mouth. Movies! Comics! PJs! Chimichangas! Do it all weekend if you‘d like! Hope to see you Sunday the 25th for DEADPOOL! 😈🖤

To vote for next month‘s feature and for more details, visit this link: https://goo.gl/ahHR56

LouBeth Does Gwenpool count in this? I'm really curious about that character too. 5y
Clwojick @LouBeth you could definitely vote for her to be featured in April, and if you want her to win you could advertise to have other Littens vote with you. 😉 but if you mean to read about her while we‘re doing Deadpool, I certainly don‘t see why not. ♥️ (edited) 5y
readinginthedark Oh no! That‘s the day of my son‘s birthday party, so I probably can‘t do this. But I‘ll try to read some Deadpool this month just because! 5y
Clwojick @readinginthedark feel free to make it a weeklong/monthlong thing. ♥️whatever works for you! But please tag me and @TricksyTails so we can see what Deadpool goodies you find and read. 😉 5y
readinginthedark Will do! 👍🏻 5y

Well, these past few days life has really gotten in the way of reading and Litsy. I had a pretty bad virus for almost a week, and now I‘m busy with my wedding planning. I completely forgot about the #LetsGetGraphicMonthlyFeature and I am so so sorry that I haven‘t been on here hyping it up and reminding everyone! I‘ll do better next month! 😉 anyways better late than never! ♥️

Erin7 I hope you‘re feeling better. Have fun with your wedding planning. 5y

I just wanted to thank @Clwojick and @TricksyTails for running such a fantastic readathon with the #letsgetgraphicweeklongmarathon. I read 21 graphic novels or collected volumes of comics, which was super fun-but look at all the ones I DIDN'T get to!! 😳

TricksyTails 🙌😊 Thank you for your awesome participation!! Your posts were so entertaining! My stack of books that I didn‘t get to is much bigger than what I read. Oh well. I‘ll have more for next time! Can‘t wait to see what you think of Y: The Last Man. 🤗♥️ 5y

@TricksyTails & I have had a blast with you during #LetsGetGeraphicWeeklongMarathon! We don‘t want the fun to end, so we‘re starting a monthly #readalong called #LetsGetGraphicMonthlyFeature. One Saturday of the month, we‘ll hang out together celebrating a favorite comic character. No challenges! Just an all-day homage to your fave characters. February‘s feature is BATMAN!

For more details, visit this link: 👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻

TricksyTails BATMAN!! 🖤🖤🖤 5y

Ruri_kaichou That sounds amazing! I won't be able to participate, but I'm looking forward to posts those day. 🤓 5y
WarpedSweetness Oh this is awesome!!! Do you plan on doing this all year? I should probably check out the link before I ask questions.lol 5y
Clwojick @AshleyHoss820 We will definitely be making posts closer to the date of, to remind everyone and to let them know who we‘re featuring ❤️ 5y
Clwojick @daena Thanks! Hope you‘ll join us! @Erin7 ahahhaha! Absolutely! 5y
Clwojick @Ruri_kaichou Hope you‘ll be able to join in on the next one than! Make sure to click the link above if you want to vote for March‘s features character. ❤️ 5y
Clwojick @WarpedSweetness ahahah! Probably until we run out of characters 😆 5y
AshleyHoss820 @Erin7 The 60‘s Batman show‘s theme song is the ringtone I have for my husband!! 😂❤️ @Clwojick Awesome!! Yay!! 5y
Clwojick @AshleyHoss820 I‘ve always preferred the classic BATMAN to this new dark knight stuff. I like both, but the original if fricken golden! 5y
AshleyHoss820 @Clwojick Gold is right!! The exaggerated villains, the *biff* *bam!* effects! Shark repellent! What‘s NOT to love!? 5y
Erin7 @AshleyHoss820 hahaha...love it! 5y
CareBear I just want to thank you and @TricksyTails for hosting #letsgetgraphicweeklongmarathon. I had so much fun seeing everyone‘s posts, and adding a bunch of new graphic novels to my TBR. You guys did a wonderful job hosting, so thank you! 💕 5y
Clwojick @CareBear Thank you so much! ❤️ I‘m glad you joined us, and I‘m so happy you enjoyed it! I‘ve added a ton of Graphics to my TBR, so I will have reading material for the next one 😉 We will definitely be doing another one in three or so months! 5y
readinginthedark Oh fun! So, you‘re going to feature villains with their superhero counterparts and not separately, or is that a “once we‘ve exhausted all of our choices” thing? 5y
TricksyTails @CareBear 😘😘😘 Aww thank you so much! My TBR has nearly doubled thanks to all of the fun posts. It‘s been so much that I wish we could do this all year long. Thank you for participating and making it the best party EVER! ♥️🎉📚 5y
Clwojick @readinginthedark So for BATMAN in February we‘ll be celebrating Batman and his villains! I know a lot of libraries are limited with what they offer, and we‘re trying to make sure everyone can join in, so if we include the featured superhero and their villains, there will be more of a chance people can get their hands on some reading material. But if we get enough requests we can definitely devote a whole day to the villains as well! 5y
readinginthedark That makes sense! 5y
GarthRanzz I know things are a little up in the air and I hope that @TricksyTails is okay but if there‘s anything I can do to help with this today please just let me know. GarthRanzz at gmail dot com. 5y
Clwojick @GarthRanzz to be 100% honest, I completely forgot about this today.... I‘ve been sick, and obviously @TricksyTails is having a bad week. I feel so bad about forgetting ( and ESPECIALLY on Batman day! Lol) 5y
GarthRanzz Well you‘re both back and okay. That‘s what matters! 5y

Ahhhhhh! I cannot be trusted! I have a tendency to take things to the extreme, and I'd say my TBR for the marathon is looking a little EXTREME right now. 🙈

I ran to the library today before work to RETURN some books, and walked out with 28 more. I am going to have sooooo many options for the #LetsGetGraphicWeeklongMarathon that it's nuts!

This makes it over 100 books that I currently have out from the library. 😬😱🙈 #LetMeSeeYourStack #TBR

TricksyTails @Godmotherx5 I have, but it's been a while. I remember initially liking it but feeling underwhelmed by the end. I had really high expectations though. I enjoyed it well enough. I'd borrow it from the library. Would I purchase it? Probably not. I might reread it again though because the premise is pretty cool. I'm not sure my babbling helped at all! 🙈 5y

TricksyTails Me too! If I had physical copies I'd hoard all of them but I'll take what I can get! I was thinking of waiting to see if any of the series in my first Hoopla haul will make me want to continue the series. If so, then I'll have those 15 credits to dip into. Find anything good today? 5y

Clwojick @WarpedSweetness hahahah! My libraries have a superb selection. 😉 5y
WarpedSweetness @Clwojick I live in a smallish more rural area, so the library in my town really doesn't have a great selection. And the library in the next town, which is much bigger, doesn't allow interlibrary loans, or for you to get a card unless you are a resident of that town. So sad and disappointing. I'm actually looking forward to going back to PA just for the library system. Lol 5y
Clwojick @WarpedSweetness we have 4 libraries in my city, and they're all okay with interlibrary loans, which is a huge bonus. I also love that we don't have a limit on the amount of books we can take out. 😂😂 5y

We're getting closer and closer to the start date of the #LetsGetGraphicWeeklongMarathon ❤️ It's just 4 days away, and I wanted to make sure everyone can join in. I know how overwhelming it can be to choose from all the books out there, if you're not familiar with what you might like, so I thought it'd be great to tag some favourites with #RecommededGraphics to help spread the awesomeness for the upcoming Marathon. Please share your favourites! 📚
