Summary"This guide has been organized into two classroom subject areas. Teachers who wish to borrow ideas across disciplines will find that the student materials are particularly easy to adapt to different subject needs. Language Arts: As autobiography, expressed through the conversations between father and son, MAUS offers English teachers a unique opportunity to analyze form and explore character development and the use of metaphor. Visual Arts: As a graphic novel which features the artist as one of the characters, MAUS offers art teachers an opportunity to explore style, the artistic process and contemporary cartooning as it relates to issues of social justice."
