English teaching, Shakespeare, graphic novel
This paper explores the graphic novel as a means to engage secondary English students in the works of Shakespeare. Graphic novels can combat some of the common complaints of teaching Shakespeare in secondary schools. They can help students to better relate to and understand the stories and language of Shakespeare. They can also assist learning disabled students in accessing and engaging in Shakespeare.
Intensive reading, discussion, and (in some sections) viewing of plays from the comedy, tragedy, romance, and history genres.
