Natalie, 11
Mitchell Intermediate School
Natalie wrote this about her favorite AMULET character:

Out of all the Amulet characters, I admire Emily the most. I think she's really brave and strong. For example, when her brother told her not to touch the stone because it would wake up the robots in her grandfather's house, she did it anyway even though she didn't know what would happen if she did. And she was willing to risk her life to save her mother from the Arachnopod. I also thought it was cool that she was the Stonekeeper, and that the Stonekeeper was a girl.
Natalia drew this picture of Emily:

This exercise is just one of many ways to bring comics literature into the classroom and connect to the standards and skills that students need in order to be successful in school and life. Notice Natalie restated the question, gave her opinion and then supported her belief with specific details from the story.
