There's been a boom in nonficition graphic novel publishing over the last decade, but many teachers aren't sure which ones are best for their classrooms. This session will share the best titles for elementary and secondary classrooms, sorted by content area into ELA, social studies, and science. We'll also explore strategies for classroom use that move beyond traditional texts and into the realm of graphic novels.
