Green Day

Published to wide critical acclaim in France, Persepolis is Marjane Satrapi's memoir of growing up in Iran during the Islamic Revolution.

This crisp graphic novel was turned into a film.

Here are some lesson plans around the novel. This one, Storyboarding Revolution @ The New Museum's Global Classroom, rocks.

Pictures Tell the Story: Improving Comprehension with Persepolis by Janet M. Ankiel of Basking Ridge, New Jersey is also terrific.
