I introduce my students to 21 visual formats for capturing their responses to reading assignments.

The color images that follow were drawn by students in my literature and writing classes from fall 2009 through fall 2010.

They are in response to a variety of reading assignments, including MAUS, Scott McCloud’s Understanding Comics, John Gage’s The Shape of Reason, and selections from American Earth: Environmental Writing Since Thoreau and from The Oxford Book of American Short Stories.
