Slate, Barbara You Can Do A Graphic Novel Literature- Creative Writing,
Literature- Authors,
Visual Arts- Cartooning
The students create a character study that tells everything you’ve ever wanted to know about a character, plot a story, do an interesting layout, and demystify the creative process. Some of the schools and libraries have organized an exhibition of the students' work. It is good for a teen’s self-esteem to see their work on display. It also attracts a lot of attention to the library, and usually results in articles in local newspapers. Any press showing a student's work is a big plus for their portfolio. Four to twelve sessions can be scheduled. Details are at http://youcandoagraphicnovel.com/
