As I was reading through some of the links on our blog, I got distracted and ended up on the following website: http://www.geocities.com/misteryang/comicsedu/index.html. It discusses the work of Sones in 1944. Sixty-four years ago, his studies proved that readers, especially those of "low and middle intelligence levels" learned more with pictures and text than they had with only text. If this happened so long ago, then why (in your opinion) are we just now getting around to implementing 'graphic novels' into our curriculum?
