Graphic Novels Now Part of ETHS Curriculum

September 25, 2010

Last year, two Evanston Township High School faculty members (English department, librarian and media specialist Nancy Figel, and literacy coordinator Regina Armour) led a pilot project which found that graphic novels are “effective pre-reading and review aids.” Now they are introducing this new curriculum into “reading intervention” classes at ETHS, to “raise reading levels among struggling readers and to engage students in reading dense classics.”  Graphic novel adaptations of The Odyssey, Macbeth, and The Autobiography of Malcolm X, will be read in conjunction with the traditional texts.
