Editorial Reviews

?With Going Graphic, Stephen Cary has done it again, producing another exceptional resource for teachers of second language learners. But this time he focuses on a genre with great appeal to students, comic books, carefully tailoring his message to teachers' questions and concerns. He offers theoretical and research grounds for using comics, a wealth of historical and cross-cultural information on comics, and detailed descriptions of rich activities integrating comics, content, critical literacy, and social action. Who could ask for anything more??-Carol Edelsky, Arizona State University
