Children’s Literature and Materials: Fall 2013

Instructor:

Edith Ching

School:

iSchool at Maryland

Semester:

Fall 2013

Description:

This course surveys literature and other materials for children and youth as they relate to the needs, interests, reading abilities and other capabilities of readers through middle school (grade 8). Criteria for evaluating and using such materials will also be discussed.

A driving question that we will continually revisit throughout this course is: Is children’s literature defined by the act of children reading it or are there specific characteristics that make this a unique literature?

Required Textbook:
