Transforming English Education with Graphic Novels

I'm pleased to announce that my article, "Transforming English with Graphic Novels: Moving toward Our “Optimus Prime,” has been published in this month's English Journal (97.2). Here's how NCTE describes the article:

James Bucky Carter argues for the transformative potential of graphic novels in the English classroom. He advises teachers to be actively aware of the newer and lesser-known graphic novels and suggests approaches for examining the complex social issues the novels address.

EJ has a circulation of around 25,000 and an acceptance rate, if I remember correctly, of around 10%. So, I'm very happy to be included in this issue on "Transforming English Education."
