Abstract

Through the use of biographical and historical graphic novels, students can gain a different awareness of historical concepts and ideas, thus meeting the needs of differing styles of learning as well as presenting the ideas in a format many students are familiar with. This presentation focuses on a unit of teaching the Holocaust using Art Spiegelman's Maus, leading students in analysis of the work with an additional element of studying the graphical elements.
