School of Education Student Published

Master of Arts in Teaching graduate student Rebecca James had an excerpt of her capstone published in the Minnesota English Journal. The piece, “Redefining Literacy Through Graphic Novels,” can be read on the Minnesota English Journal website.

Adjunct Faculty Kathryn Campbell serves as Primary Advisor on James' committee and encouraged her to adapt and submit a segment of her work to the Minnesota English Journal.

"With increasing visual literacy standards more classrooms are incorporating the graphic novel, so Becca's work feels meaningful and timely to the Minnesota English Journal's readership,” said Campbell. “Her willingness to take further steps beyond capstone and publish to a broader audience is a testament to the teacher-leader that Becca is becoming."
