Making Curriculum Pop

Hi there,

I just accepted a Writers in the Schools residency at Lincoln High School in Portland Oregon. I'm going in once a week to two 9th Global Studies classes, which as I understand it, is like Social Studies or World History. I'm going to be teaching them how to make comics and self-publish. I have the self-publishing part covered. But I'm looking for recommendations for good comics to read and use as models that focus on world history. I'm aware of Maus, Persepolis, Palestine, but curious if anyone has additional suggestions...

The AP Hobbes one is quite good in explaining Hobbes inside a Leviathan. It hits key ideas. What I like about them is that they incorporate phrases from the actual text. For gifted students I would definately use them. They are definately harder to read than Boyds work.
