Supplemental Resources: Graphic Fiction (not required reading, but fun!)

Graphic Fiction is a mesmerizing genre of literature that incorporates animation in both fiction and nonfiction venues. Often graphic novels are part of an anthology; many of these novels have become successful movies and television series. Graphic fiction is able to take the reader to a place that photos, film, and words cannot.

· Scholatic.com offers this teacher’s guide to the important critical reading, thematic, and word choice skills that can be learned from graphic fiction:

·

· If you have never read/viewed graphic artistry, please take the time to look at the Graphic Fiction section of your literature book as well as the TED talk by Michael Chaney.

Prompt (what will you be writing about):

Despite having sold more than 40 million copies, To Kill a Mockingbird is still one of the most

banned books in American school curriculum. This is based in its adult theme and charged

language.

Now that you have viewed this version (which is almost identical to the novel), what do you

think about his ban? Please respond to the following prompt, using the film study, and two

other academic/reliable sources. In your essay, use cited text examples from both research

sources as well as the film.

Should Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird be banned in middle and high schools? Why

or why not?

Instructions (how to get it done):

• Choose your side of this issue and decide what three supporting proofs you are going to use

to defend your argument.

• Create a thesis statement that clearly states your argument and how you are going to prove it.

You are welcome to use the following template:

o It is apparent that Harper Lee’s Pulitzer Prize winning novel, To Kill a Mockingbird,

should be banned in middle and high schools because of reason #1, reason #2,

reason #3.

• Go to the library database and find two sources that will help you defend your argument. You

must use information from these articles in your essay and cite this new information with an in

text-citation. Format for citing from articles is:

o According to research, Lee’s novel has been on the list of top ten banned books since

it was written in 1960 (Miller, 1986).

OR

o According to Miller (1986), Lee’s novel has been on the list of top ten banned books

since it was written in 1960.

Requirements:

• Use the third-person, objective voice, avoiding personal pronouns such as “I,” “you,” “we,” etc.

• Use APA format for in-text citations and references when using outside sources and textual

evidence.

• Please be cautious about plagiarism. Make sure to use in-text citations for direct quotes,

paraphrases, and new information.
