Theseus and the Minotaur
WHAT IS A TOON GRAPHIC
TOON Graphics are stories written, or rewritten, with the illustrations in a comic book style. This is a highly engaging visual narrative that brings the text to life in a way that captures young readers’ imaginations and makes them want to read on—and read more. A Toon Graphic can make a difficult story easier for a young reader to process.
The very act of using this style requires the user to make connections and draw conclusions. This pulls on their use of imagination and pulls them into the story in such a way that they connect with the story on a deeper level, especially for kids at that cross roads age of needing to “see” the concrete, but starting to understand or at least tinker with the abstract, its constructs and the bigger meanings.
This skill of the abstract and of seeing the bigger picture generally develops between 4th to 7th grades, depending upon the child. Toon Graphics can be extra beneficial during this age range and grade range, especially when dealing with difficult vocabulary, classical literature, such as Orpheus, and more complex, overlapping meanings.
