The unit introduces students to the art of the graphic novel. Students will be introduced to the fundamentals of the creative process, offered a number of tips for how to get the creative juices flowing, and then instructed on how to make up a story, how to fashion characters and plot, how to get writing, and finally how to layout the pages of a graphic novel."
