To understand the field of children’s literature, participants will engage in readings, discussions, written analyses, and workshops that will address literary and informational texts for children from birth to age 12. Topics include an examination of picture and chapter books, multicultural literature, literature in a variety of genres, non-fiction texts across a range of subjects, introducing literature into elementary classrooms, and censorship.
Reading Endorsement : For members of the class who are licensed teachers or who intend to become licensed teachers, The Evergreen State College offers this course as one of five courses that leads to a Washington State reading endorsement. The other courses are Instructional Methods in Literacy and Assessment in Literacy (offered in summer 2014) and Foundations of Literacy and Research in Literacy (offered in summer 2015).
