In my undergraduate program, I met a fantastic lady named Jen who taught most of my language arts classes in the program - my favorite of which was Childrens' Literature. I asked her an interesting question in our first semester together and that was, "Can we use graphic novels and how do you want us to categorize them?" for the project in which we had to read a ton of kids' books. She said she didn't really read them and told me to use my digression.
But later, she came back to me, feeling horrible she had never given the genre a try and asked for a list of recommendations. In later semesters, she decided to incorporate it into the curriculum we were learning and asked me to speak about them with another class. And since then, I've stopped by her class every semester to do a short talk and the best of which she also asked me to do a Roundtable with her Masters' class she teaches during the summer. For those unfamiliar with the term, every one reads and brings in a few graphic novels and we go around and discuss them and then close up with how we would use them in the classroom/library.
So, for these purposes, I have been adding to a long list of Graphic Novels I've read over the year and wanted a place to put them. Figure this blog is a great place and that some of my readers would be interested in this list.
So, without further ado - click the link. :)
