BLACK AGE PRODUCTS IN THE CLASSROOM!
A reading specialist in the Chicago Public Schools is on record saying, "the thought provoking stories and art were a great educational motivator to my students. They opened up a flow of creative writing, drawing and critical thinking among them." Since 1993 she has regularly collected books from the Chicago Black Age Convention and ONLI STUDIOS for her students' use. In an increasingly visual culture, literacy educators can profit from the use of graphic novels in the classroom, especially for young adults. The term graphic novel
includes fiction as well as nonfiction text with pictures—"comics" in book format. That such works are being taken seriously is reflected in an issue of The New York Times Book Review
), which included a review of four graphic novels, and the novel The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay
) about two comics creators, which was also a Pulitzer Prize winner. Moreover, librarians have become strong supporters of graphic novels. (See, for example, Bruggeman, 1997
; DeCandido, 1990
; Kan, 1994
).Graphic Novels Across the Curriculum
Graphic novels offer value, variety, and a new medium for literacy that acknowledges the impact of visuals. These novels appeal to young people, are useful across the curriculum, and offer diverse alternatives to traditional texts as well as other mass media. They can also promote literacy.
Smart collectors are speculating on the potential of current rare and hard to find
Black Age materials, art & books.
Serious educators are taking these books into the classroom to inspire students.
