And she says graphic memoirs — like Art Spiegelman’s Maus, about the Holocaust, and Marjane Satrapi’s Persepolis, about growing up during Iran’s Islamic Revolution — inspired her. “I really wanted to do what they did,” she says, “weave the personal and the political and the historical to tell a story of the Vietnam War and all the things that caused it, in a way that I felt like I hadn’t seen before.”
List some of the similarities between The Best We Could Do and Persepolis.

2. From “The Best We Could Do by Thi Bui + Author Interview [in Bloom]. “Becoming a mother herself in 2005 altered Bui’s sense of family, especially her relationship with her own mother – who birthed six children, an experience Bui can’t fathom after surviving the birth of her first (and only) child. In the book, while lying exhausted in her hospital bed gazing at her sleeping son, she muses, “Family is something now I have created – and not just something I was born into.” Motherhood brings new urgency to her need to remember, understand, empathize … and, ultimately, make peace with the tumultuous events of her brief childhood in Vietnam and the challenges of adjusting to life as refugees and later as Americans.”

SECTION IV: (The complete persepolis by Marjane Satrapi (part 1)(book), The complete persepolis by marjane Satrapi (part 2)(book), Imagine Wanting Only This by Kristen Radtke (book), Stitches A Memoir by David Small (book), The Best We Could Do by Thi Bui (book), Burma Chronicles by Guy Delisle (book) and The Best of Both Worlds Rethinking the Literary Merit of Graphic Novels (link))

1. “The future of this form awaits its participants who truly believe that the application of sequential art, with its interweaving of words and pictures, could provide a dimension of communication that contributes—hopefully on a level never before attained—to the body of literature that concerns itself with the examination of human experience.”—Will Eisner, Comics and Sequential Art (p. 141) Do you think that graphic novels contribute to the body of literature that concerns itself with the examination of human experience?
If so, please comment using three of the five books read in class to support your answer.
If you disagree, please use three of the books read in class to support your answer.
Provide two pieces of textual evidence per book
(200-word response)

2.Consider, for a moment, some of the reasons educators are encouraged to embrace graphic novels—and, to a lesser extent, comic books—as a teaching tool. Graphic novels are said to:
scaffold students for whom reading and writing are difficult (Bitz, 2004; Frey & Fisher, 2004; Morrison, Bryan, & Chilcoat, 2002);
foster visual literacy (Frey & Fisher, 2008);
support English language learners (Ranker, 2007);
motivate “reluctant” readers (Crawford, 2004; Dorrell,1987);
and provide a stepping stone that leads students to transact with more traditional (and presumably more valuable) forms of literature.
Which of the claims do you agree with? Please explain why. If you disagree, you will have to explain why.
You have to respond to at least 2 of the points. Textual evidence is required.
(200-word response)

3. Respond to both statements:
Statement 1: “I think all of us have taken away just as much from like our graphic novel reading experience as we have from our classroom reading experience. Maybe more. And I think . . . there’s just as much substance to graphic novels as there is to just regular literature, and I don’t think teachers realize that.”
Statement 2: “For my teaching goals, I want to include literature that will do at least one of three things— preferably all of them at once: encourage students to read, teach something, and broaden the reader’s worldview and encourage critical thinking. I do not believe that graphic novels do these things. First, there simply is not enough text to make me believe that it significantly encourages reading.”
Do you agree? Do you disagree? Does your answer depend on the book being read?
Please use three of the books read in class to support your answer.
Provide two pieces of textual evidence per book
