Time for change?

The images are from Marjane Satrapi’s graphic novel, Persepolis. Some excerpts from her novel, portraying government behaviour, have been posted on a wall. In Persepolis, (as well as Chronicles of Burma), the ‘shadyness’ of the government stuck out to me a lot, and got me thinking if the government will ever change its ways in the Third World?

Graphic Novels as Textbooks

Comics as textbooks??? What has this world come to? Jeremy Short is a teacher with an interest in getting young people to be interested in education, and feels that a change in the traditional learning system is needed. Find the article on http://www.insidehighered.com/news/2010/08/20/graphic

It’s interesting because it seems like graphic novels are becoming more popular and more talked about these days. Also, this particular article talks about an author whose main target audience are young adults, and it seems like he really has a vision with this. He wants young people to achieve their goals in life, and through this medium feels like he can really get through. Check it out!
