Reaching. reluctant. readers. In education and publishing circles, reluctant
readers refers to those teens and tweens who aren't so keen on spending their
free time — or their assigned time, for that matter — with a book. What makes

necessary and important for young people to practice writing fiction, the fact is
that most students will not grow up to be novelists or playwrights. Most of them,
however, will find themselves regularly writing emails, reports, evaluations,
memos, and instructions. This kind of writing is known as “non-fiction” or “

In short, comic books have a long reach in popular culture. People have a hunger
for the stories they tell, even if they are not aware of that until the characters are

Rankin-Erickson 2003). Graphic nonfiction can add interest to otherwise dry
topics.
