Persepolis picture-reading

 I really appreciate the picture-reading exercise we did on Tuesday with Persepolis.  I spend more time reading the text in graphic novels, so using class time to look at and decode the pictures was really helpful.  It put a new dimension on the Marji's story for me-- by noting the messages the pictures were sending, emotions were intensified, details were illustrated and new information was sometimes displayed.  This exercise made me stop and take a second to look at the pictures-- it made me more aware of the graphic aspect in graphic novels.
