I noticed that our school's classrooms and library are pretty well stocked with comics. And last year my son's teacher encouraged her students to read comic books (Calvin and Hobbes was a favorite in our house), and quite effectively, used the comic book format to help the students compose essays. And I know, we at Edutopia, have written a few great pieces on how comic books can improve literacy. But I wanted to hear how other teachers are using this art form to help kids improve their reading skills.
