The black-and-white drawings in this seven-volume series are richly detailed, but readers who have seen the animated film may not find them as engaging as that visually stunning experience. Graphic narratives are a prime example of a ‘play genre’ in literature, central to Cook’s (2000, pp. 195-196) stress on giving literature a reconstituted and broader role in play-focused language and literacy pedagogies.

He doesn't want to face his past, but there are some things that you can't turn away from. When he visits his cousin Danny –– the epitome of White, high school boys: athletic, popular with girls, etc. –– he is completely embarrassed. She has to beware her nemesis, popular Felicia Furrypaws, and bear with teachers who use the "blah blah blah" method of instruction. Xu advocates for educators to spend time reading a graphic novel and noting their own comprehension skills. “I think that every preservice and inservice teacher needs to experience this activity in order to better understand literacy knowledge and skills that students use with reading comics and graphic novels,” Xu said.

They provide assistance and guidance, such as suggested reading lists, to help young people make appropriate choices. Thus, at the beginning of Western literary criticism, the controversy already exists. Set in an alternate matriarchal 1900's Asia, in a richly imagined world of art deco-inflected steampunk, MONSTRESS tells the story of a teenage girl who is struggling to survive the trauma of war, and who shares a mysterious psychic link with a monster of tremendous power, a connection that will transform them both.

Assessments such as tests and quizzes, if appropriately designed, can also help assess comprehension. Finally, during the fifth book club session, I asked Bob if he would be interested in checking out graphic novels in the school library and he answered, “Yes, there are so many good ones.” Even though two of the participants did not show an increase in their AMRP Self-Concept as a Reader scores, their comments reflected their beliefs that their experiences with graphic novels helped to improve their reading.

Sunday March 22nd 2015 update: On Sunday 15th March, the final event of the Huddersfield Literature Festival showcased the first three completed pieces of music and dance of a work-in-progress: the dance / theatre adaptation of Dotter of Her Father's Eyes by composer Gary Lloyd and choreographer / performer Bettina Carpi. At first she throws herself into research with great enthusiasm, but over time, it becomes clear that... The second part of Pisket’s brutally poetic retelling of his Armenian/Turkish immigrant father’s life concentrates on his arrival and early life in Denmark as an immigrant haunted by a violent past, not least the torture he was subjected to as a deserter from the Turkish army.
