Who do graphic novels benefit?
Graphic novels can often give reluctant readers or those who struggle with reading a sense of accomplishment. Those learning the English language may find graphic novels to be easier to follow, thanks to the detailed images that accompany the text. Also, many people are visual learners, and graphic novels help interpret nonverbal gestures and allow readers to anticipate the plot.
Graphic novels can help develop reading skills like:
- Understanding the sequence of events
- Building vocabulary
- Interest in independent reading
