Comic Books

I teach in a school for English Language Learners, so I try to utilize comics and graphic novels as well. Comics can help students who don't fully understand English put the words they are reading in context. Below are guides I have given students as they read various comics/graphic novels in my class. Feel free to use as needed.


X-Men: God Loves, Man Kills

Civil Rights Movements


Magneto: Testament

The Holocaust


Persepolis: The Story of a Childhood

Iranian Revolution


American Born Chinese

Race, Identity, and Empathy
