MORE THAN JUST A GOOD READ


BUILDING LITERACY IN RELUCTANT READERS

WHY YOU NEED WIREMAN

Wireman comics connect with hard-­to-­reach readers through culturally relevant literature that features relatable characters in familiar settings and provides a plot rich with elements that tap into the reader's everyday experiences--urban landscapes, friends, bullies and plenty of adolescent angst.

HOW WIREMAN WORKS

Volume 1 focuses on the 100 most common words, which represent 50% of all written English. Volume 2 focuses on the 300 most common words (65% of all written English). The accompanying curriculum guide provides extended support for building reading, fluency, comprehension and more

WHY IT MATTERS

Illiteracy in the urban core is a national problem and traditional approaches to literacy have failed many young people. Graphic stories like Wireman provide an alternative format that builds literacy in a wide range of readers, without stigmatizing those who struggle.
