A graphic novel is a format, not a genre, of writing that uses art to tell a story. They can be fiction, nonfiction, realistic fiction, mystery, fantasy, and so much more! They can be any genre and are similar to comic books, except that they are usually stand alone stories with more intricate plots. Graphic novels use images and text to tell a story. Many people think that graphic novels and comic books are the same thing, but they are actually quite different and have their own unique qualities. Graphic novels are engaging and entertaining; they are the perfect way to teach students in a way that they don't even realize they're learning!
Some graphic novels that students might be familiar with include:
A graphic novel template is an excellent starting point for students to start creating their stories. Our templates have all different kinds of panel patterns so that students do not have to stress over starting with a blank page and creating their own blank graphic.
Graphic novels combine both images and text to tell a cohesive story. Print and assemble multiple pages together to create a blank booklet for students to use, or have students choose different layouts for each page.
