Using Graphic Novels for History

Three tweets on the subject of Graphic Novels caught my eye today, and I thought that I would share them with you.  The first was from a blog called Talking Books, which is a blog by the CILIPSLG London and South East Group.  The group had recently had a training event at Forbidden Planet, and had come back with several good websites and a list of the top ten graphic novels every school library should have on their shelves.   In response to this tweet by @dawnafinch, who is one of the leaders of the group, came a tweet from Matt Imrie (@mattlibrarian) who runs the Teen Librarian blog.  If you haven’t read it yet, do subscribe, it’s great!  Matt sent two links for historical graphic novels to be used in schools.  The first is a general historical list, and the second is specifically about the Holocaust.  Both of the lists should find a place in every school library.  Thanks to Matt and Dawn for tweeting these lists.
