Teachers, Librarians, and Parents are Welcome!
Join the Follett Community to learn about comics with Françoise Mouly, founder of TOON Books, as she discusses her groundbreaking work to publish comics for beginning readers.
Discussion topics will cover how:
- Comics offer an expanded array of multimodal supports to assist readers in visualization, decoding text, and comprehending narratives.
- Comics can be an effective on-ramp to grade-level text, particularly for reluctant readers.
- TOON Books are carefully constructed by reading level and grade level so that teachers can then springboard into meaningful instruction about specific standards, including inferencing, predicting, envisioning, making connections, finding the main idea, and key details.
