Edited by James Bucky Carter. Graphic novels can sometimes face an uphill battle for legitimacy in school libraries and classrooms. This CD-ROM was created to help educators and librarians provide support for the use and inclusion of comics, graphic novels, and manga in the secondary classroom. Included on the CD are an explanatory introduction, a genre guide and title list, and more than 100 rationales for graphic novels from almost every genre the form supports: journalism, science fiction, fantasy, slice-of-life realism, superhero, murder mystery, and those that combine genres. Rationales include all the information necessary to decide whether a certain work is a good fit for the class: grade level and audience, plot summary, strengths and unique characteristics of the work, possible objections, ideas for implementation, awards, reviews, and resources/references. These rationales can be used as part of a contract with parents and administrators that lays out how the texts are to be used and to help teachers feel secure in bringing the text into their classrooms, either on their shelves for independent reading or as part of a curriculum.
