Graphic novels (or comic books as they were known when I was a child) are a fabulous way to integrate literacy and to hook reluctant readers into the lifelong reader lifestyle. There is already a blog post on virtual field trips and on Mystery Connections on our blog. Skype is partnering with Scholastic to offer a virtual field trip for the popular Dream Jumper series on January 23rd at 10 AM PT (or 12 PM CT). Check out the information and register here.
Additionally Scholastic and Skype invite you to connect with Graphix Authors, January 23-27. Follow the link HERE to view all the ways your class can get involved in this learning adventure!
