Abstract

Graphic novels and comics have been considered mostly a medium for entertainment for children and adults. However, considering their strong impact, this medium may very well serve as an educational tool (Gretchen, 2006; Mallia, 2007; Tatalovic, 2009). In this paper, we will report the findings from interviews conducted with middle school English teachers to assess their awareness, opinions and willingness regarding the use of graphic novels as instructional material to teach ESL learners in Indian classrooms.
