Using Graphic Novels in Education: March: Book One

In this column, we examine graphic novels, including those that have been targeted by censors, and provide teaching and discussion suggestions for the use of such books in classrooms. In this post, we take a closer look at March: Book One by John Lewis, Andrew Aydin, and Nate Powell (Top Shelf, 2013). We highlight it here as it sensitively documents Americans’ struggle for equal rights and civil liberties, and because this award-winning graphic novel is an excellent book to read, learn, and discuss for Black History Month. March: Book One begins the trilogy of Representative John Lewis’s graphic novel memoire, co-written with his aide Andrew Aydin and illustrated by Nate Powell.

The unidentified student was suspended from a private Catholic school, St. Gabriel Consolidated, in September of last year after school officials say he “intimidated” his classmate. According to the boy, he and the girl were engaged in a staring contest and that she was giggling the whole time. Court documents state that the girl said she “felt fearful,” leading the school to suspend the boy despite the fact that he wrote an apology saying he meant no harm. “I never knew she was scared because she was laughing,” he wrote. According to his parents, they filed suit to have the suspension removed from his record. “The perception is he intimidated her,” said his mother, Candice Tolbert. According to Tolbert, the same girl was involved in an incident at the school that was much worse, yet led to no repercussions. Aboriginal life today.
