This reminds me of an episode of Girl Meets World that I happened to see my kids watching last week. Lol...


“...the episode is titled “Girl Meets the New Teacher.” Said new teacher is Harper Burgess, who uses Miller’s 1986 Batman story as part of her lesson plan, right alongside Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird. The dark and violent graphic novel is challenged by the school’s principal, in a showdown apparently meant to mirror the confrontation between Batman and Superman in TKDR.”

The result for AP students studying classics in comic book format in this article was fascinating and the parallel with Americans burning comic books and Nazis burning any book was equally so!

"We’re seeing a paradigm shift of people translating images more fluently than text — think of Snapchat or Instagram. It’s a natural shift for kids to move into the pairing of text and images because that’s what they’re given on a constant daily basis. So it makes sense for teachers to utilize (graphic novels and comics) more.”
