Choose one chapter from the graphic novel 
Persepolis. Observe how the author-illustrator depicts Iranian community, culture, and values. Then, narrow your focus to one page, or a small group of panels, and notice how text and image work together to capture the reader’s imagination.

In your initial posting,

· Identify the chapter and specific panels that you have chosen to analyze.

· What is your chosen section of text about?

· Who is depicted and what is happening?

· Describe the cultural traditions, customs, and values that Satrapi is highlighting in the text.

· Examine at least two conventions of the graphic novel used in the text that give meaning to the story.

· How do these conventions help Satrapi to highlight cultural norms and values?

· How do these conventions heighten your response as a reader?

· Consider conventions such as the use of panels, placement of gutters, speech balloons, speech versus thought, sound effects, or light versus dark.

Your initial post is due by Day 3 and must be at least 250 words in length.
