This Graphic Novel focuses on visual comprehension skills as they apply to mathematics story problems. Traditionally ‘story problems’ depend on reading comprehension skills for the... More > development of successful problem-solving strategies. Once addition, subtraction, multiplication, division are learned in school, the students encounter story problems, also known as word problems, which require the student to read a problem and decide which operation to perform in order to get the answer. In the story there are key words that often indicate which operation you will use. Likewise, in his graphic novel Van Buskirk uses key words in the title to guide the reader to a solution. Drawings take their meaning from their positioning inside a panel sequence, a panel sequence that's nestled in the network of a page, a page that's nestled in the network of a book, a book that's nestled in the network of a culture, and a culture that's nestled in an Era of history. Drawings take their meaning from their positioning inside...< Less

The phrase (after Christian Bok) does a variety of things: It cites him as the author of an earlier work ("The Great Order of the Universe") that inspired Van Buskirk who used the words. It... More > adds another layer of meaning to the work who cites the author - now readers can look at both and see how the two are similar or differ. It creates a history about the topic under discussion that both informs and questions. It may constrain the current author to follow similar form, discuss similar topics or alternatively it might answer the previous poem, or offer a different view or.... even lead to something entirely new. In general, it honors the spirit of poetry by saying "this poet made me think". “The Great Order of the Universe” is a response to the fiftieth anniversary of the LEGO patent.

The third-person modes are usually categorized along two axes. The first is the subjectivity/objectivity axis, with third person subjective narration describing one or more character's personal... More > feelings and thoughts, and third person objective narration not describing the feelings or thoughts of any characters but, rather, just the exact facts of the story. The second axis is the omniscient/limited axis, a distinction that refers to the knowledge held by the narrator. A third person omniscient narrator has, or seems to have, access to knowledge of all characters, places, and events of the story, including any given characters' thoughts; however, a third person limited narrator, in contrast, knows information about, and within the minds of, only a limited number of characters (often just one character). A limited narrator cannot describe anything outside of a focal character's particular knowledge and experiences.< Less

More > Thomas Jefferson usually did not begin written sentences with capital letters. However, Julian P. Boyd, founding editor of the Papers of Thomas Jefferson, silently capitalized the initial letters of Jefferson’s sentences, and subsequent editors continued this practice until Volume 30, published in 2003. However, editors of the following volumes rendered his writings exactly as Jefferson wrote them. Details on the locations of the six 6 sets of 6 pages are found in the "Contents" section starting on page 5.< Less

The argument of this novel is to establish that the front matter (pages 1-8) of the book does not include the primary text, a paragraph made of 17 sentences, which is printed on p.9 and subsequently...

There is text that is not referenced by the title that can be considered part of the narrative of the novel, such as the copyright page and the dedication.

The excerpt is followed by many blank pages, but this emptiness still exists within the frame of "Pink" and "Bunny." The frame "Pink" and "Bunny" does not enclose the sentence on page 474.< Less

The Sapir–Whorf hypothesis in linguistics states that the grammatical structure of a mother language influences the way we perceive the world. The hypothesis has been largely abandoned by... More > linguists as it has found very limited experimental support, at least in its strong form. "We cut nature up, organize it into concepts, and ascribe significances as we do, largely because we are parties to an agreement to organize it in this way - an agreement that holds throughout our speech community and is codified in the patterns of our language. The agreement is, of course, an implicit and unstated one, but its terms are absolutely obligatory; we cannot talk at all except by subscribing to the organization and classification of data which the agreement decrees." - Whorf< Less

For example: “Across the road, Romanovsky pointed out a long trench running into the woods. The trench, he explained, had been formed when a wedge of underground ice had melted. The spruce trees that had been growing next to it, or perhaps on top of it, were now listing at odd angles, as if in a gale.”< Less

A panel consists of a single drawing... More > depicting a frozen moment. The word panel may also refer to a cartoon consisting of a single drawing; the usage is a shortened form of "single-panel comic". In contrast to multi-panel strips, which may involve extended dialogue in speech balloons, a typical panel comic has only one spoken line, printed in a caption beneath the panel itself. Comic layout is just as important as the storyline. It traditionally assures the smooth transition of panels but artists are investigating structural properties of comics, not just their look but more fundamental features, such as the integration of word and image on the visual plane, and the emphasis on narrative and strategies for visualizing it in the space of the page.< Less
