Get to reading your graphic novel and take notes on it as you do
Read posts to come about Note Taking and Close Reading.
To help with the Close Reading process I have a link below from Vox.com about comic books and a file discussing “Close Reading Strategies.” Pay close attention to the 3 step process laid out about “Steps in Close Reading” it discusses on page 5 of document. Use those steps to help you approach your reading and then allow that to enhance the notes you take about not only story, which you will summarize, but also the deeper elements you will want to uncover in your analysis as well.
