Sequencing and Graphic Novels with Primary-Grade Students
The authors discuss the burgeoning number of graphic novels being published for young readers (approximately PK-3) and suggest a new term for identifying this format and audience: primary graphic novels (PGNs), for primary level students. They go on to describe a series of lessons they conducted with a class of 1st and 2nd graders to capitalize on the children's curiosity for and interest in the graphic novel format in which sequencing was the primary skill addressed.
