Hey Y'all, I'm an 8th grade reading teacher in Houston about to start American Born Chinese I'm somewhat bewildered as to what to do with this novel. I've got some background info on the Monkey King and obviously there is the issue of stereotypes. I don't have any experience teaching graphic novels so could use any suggestions on lessons. My students are mostly inner-city types with limited positive reading experiences. The TAKS test is over, so I want this unit to be fun!
