Abstract

This study considers comprehension of manga as part of establishing an effective teaching method of reading comprehension for manga. Specifically, the learning program to foster media literacy through reading, interpretation, and appreciation of manga for fifth - grade students were organized and analyzed using the framework of the existing text comprehension model. According to the analyses, models such as this kind of sentence-level understanding may also be present in the reading of manga. In the reading of manga, multiple levels of comprehension may need to be taught, including surface-level, text-based, and situation models.
