Synopses & Reviews
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.
Michael Jackson, the King of Pop, had a hugely successful music career, winning many awards. But he also struggled in the spotlight, facing legal issues and money problems. He first found fame in the family band, the Jackson 5, but his long solo career ended when he died suddenly, right before his "This Is It" tour.
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.
