Boerman-Cornell’s Book Receives Honor

Congratulations to Dr. Bill Boerman-Cornell, Ph.D., Professor of Education, for being awarded the 2018 Society of Professors of Education Outstanding Book Award Honorable Mention for the book “Graphic Novels in High School and Middle School Classrooms: A Disciplinary Literacies Approach.”

The book, which was published last year by Rowman & Littlefield, was coauthored with Jung Kim and Michael L. Manderino

Since 1902, the Society of Professors of Education has provided a forum for addressing the issues facing the discipline and vocation of education. The awards ceremony will take place on April 14 in New York.

According to the publisher, “The ultimate guide for using graphic novels in any middle school or high school classroom, this book considers how the graphic novel format can support critical thinking and help reach disciplinary goals in history, English language arts, science, math, fine arts, and other subjects. Using specific graphic novels as examples, this book considers how to help students read, question, and write about both fiction and non-fiction. Whether teachers are new to graphic novels or have been working with them for years, this book will help improve instruction.”
