Can’t get enough of graphic novels? Explore creative ways to tell your story using a combination of pictures and words. Each day we will learn about the different styles of graphic novels, as well as new writing and drawing techniques. Share your work if you like, or just enjoy a read-aloud of a popular graphic novel. There will be 30 minutes of supervised, independent work time each day where you can chat with classmates for inspiration. Come be an author of your own realistic fiction, fantasy/adventure or non-fiction informational graphic novel.
