I love irony!
While this book does not include Deaf characters, I thought it was timely considering I just started searching for Deaf characters in comics and graphic novels. Building Literacy Connections with Graphic Novels: Page by Page, Panel by Panel is written for teachers. Bucky Carter and I attended the University of Virginia together. He is studying literacy issues and popular culture’s connections to education. Bucky also serves on NCTE's (National Council of Teachers of English) Review Panel for ReadWriteThink. Each chapter in this book includes practical suggestions for the classroom as it pairs a graphic novel with a more traditional text.
