This study examined how graphic novels can reinforce students’ understanding of literary terms and what students’ perceptions of using graphic novels as a learning tool are. The research was conducted with three reading clinic students who completed pre and post unit questionnaires on the literary terms used studied, filled out a questionnaire about graphic novels, created pre and post unit creative pieces based on the literary terms and were observed for behaviors and attitudes. The findings show that using graphic novels can enhance student recall of literary terms and they are a text type students enjoy. Teachers should use graphic novels in classrooms because they are an engaging tool that aids in students’ comprehension of literary terms.
