SAT Vocabulary Building Manga?
For SAT students that dread traditional vocabulary building techniques but love manga media, there is a new product on the market — the manga graphic novel edited to contain SAT vocabulary words. Take a popular fantasy book, rewrite it a bit to include SAT required vocabulary words and you have an academic twist on a manga story.
Tokyopop, a renown distributor of manga media selected 3 of its popular trilogies and reworked the first volume of each for the SAT vocabulary building series. These slightly edited stories will help the manga fan/SAT student better absorb new vocabulary words. The 3 titles in this pseudo-academic series are:
- Warcraft: Dragon Hunt, Volume 1 by Richard A. Knaak and Kim Jae-hwan
- Psy-Comm, Volume 1 by Jason Henderson and Tony Salvaggio
- Van Von Hunter, Volume 1 by Mike Schwark and Ron Kaulfersch
These books highlight important vocabulary words and include their definitions in page margins. Pretty handy for SAT students into this type of media.
