From the Revolutionary War to current events, graphic novels pull readers into history. Comics have been shown to improve reader engagement while enhancing both comprehension and retention. And with the new emphasis on reading nonfiction, academic vocabulary, and reading in the subject areas, comics are more relevant than ever. Creators Nathan Hale (Nathan Hale's Hazardous Tales) and Jonathan Hennessey (The United States Constitution: A Graphic Adaptation), educator Meryl Jaffe (CBLDFUsing Graphic Novels in Education; Raising a Reader! How Comics & Graphic Novels Can Help Your Kids Learn to Read), and moderator Tracy Edmunds (Reading With Pictures) discuss the best in comics and graphic novels for teaching history and social studies, including recommended titles and lesson ideas.
