Looking over this article on graphic novels, I have noticed how they have started to become a success with educators who use them in their curriculums. I would make use of this article and website, by saving it, and referring back to it, whenever I wanted to incorporate a graphic novel into my curriculum. I would probably try to incorporate these novels while teaching History or Science, because I know those subjects can be hard for many students to grasp. Although reading and learning about Science or History by reading graphic novels with many pictures could be very beneficial.

Summary Graphic Novel: Pashmina

Pashmina is about a teenage girl, who is raised by her immigrant mother in the United States. Pashmina’s mother is from India, and Pashmina has a burning desire to visit India to learn more about her father. She has never met her father before, and when she finds out the sad truth about her father on a trip to India to visit her Aunt, she finally discovers why her mother refused to ever talk about her long lost father.

Question D

Pashmina is being a little sassy to her mother at dinner one evening. When I look at the expression on Pashmina’s face her eyes are narrowed, arms are folded across her chest and she looks either angry or frustrated at her mother. Pashmina is upset with her mother at the dinner table, because she will not talk to her about her father from India. She quotes to her mother, “You always change the subject,” (Chanani, 15) whenever Pashmina brings up her father to her mother.
