Graphic Novels

Advocates of reading and literacy overall can not ignore the increasing popularity of graphic novels.  Their appeal to readers whether reluctant or avid of any age is undenible.

This summer at the ALA convention in New Orleans the American Association of School Librarians selected the top 25 web sites of 2011 that supported the Standards for 21st Learners.  Nota was one of those web sites.  I discuss it in some length in a post dated July 7, 2011.

I am working on a collection of pages with the application of Nota that summarize those graphic novels available in both the elementary and middle school library media centers.  Pages will include links to author, illustrator and videos relative to each title.  A short summary will be part of every page.  It is and will continue to be a work in progress as new titles are added.
