Publisher Comments:

Themes: Hi-Lo, graphic novels, illustrated, biography. Fast-paced and easy-to-read, these softcover 25-page graphic biographies teach students about historical figures: those who lead us into new territory; pursued scientific discoveries; battled injustice and prejudice; and broke down creative and artistic barriers. These biographies offer a variety of rich primary and secondary source material to support teaching to the standards. Using the graphics, students can activate prior knowledge--bridge what they already know with what they have yet to learn. Graphically illustrated biographies also teach inference skills, character development, dialogue, transitions, and drawing conclusions. Graphic biographies in the classroom provide an intervention with proven success for the struggling reader.

Synopsis:

Visit the world of Thomas Edison, from his train car laboratory to receiving ribbons from the French Legion of Honor. He improved and invented numerous machines, including the phonograph, electric railroad, and moving pictures. But his most famous achievement was developing electric light to power the city.
