Comics in the Classroom

From graphic novel adaptations of canonical literature and visually engaging personal narratives to curriculum alignment via STEAM and civics, comics and manga have gained popularity in classrooms as supplemental tools to aid in teaching accelerated and reluctant readers of all ages. Comics make a wide range of topics more accessible to students, which in turn improves literacy through better comprehension of text and an increase in reading for pleasure.

Comics Plus offers several free resources to help you bring comics from the library into the classroom, with a range of recommended titles in key subjects for readers at every level.

  • Making Classic Literature More Accessible
  • Mentor Texts for Personal Narratives
  • S.T.E.A.M. Reading Guide
