Raising A Reader - Graphic Novels As Educational Tools

Graphic novels are coming of age, finally being recognized for the literary genre they are. Where once they were dismissed as high-brow comic books, they are now looked upon as a serious and established genre of literature, encompassing all genres, art styles and techniques.

Exhibit A: The Comic Book Legal Defense Fund has released a very cool resource for educators (like myself) and parents called Raising a Reader. It's a free book about how graphic novels can inspire interest in reading and writing among students who have grown up with video game consoles, smart phones and endless cable TV. If you're going to the ComicCon in San Diego they will be there as well to distribute copies.
