Reading pictures

Is this the “Age of Visual Learning?”

Some educators believe the phenomenal popularity of comic books and graphic novels merely reflect the fact that we use so many images in everyday communication. Emojis are one example.

For students, especially those struggling with skills or motivation to read, images add a playful element.

So if graphics increase the fun factor for readers, this genre gets my support.
