ED 665 Reading and Writing Through Children’s Literature
This course is a foundational survey of children’s literature and its impact on children’s literacy development in the elementary grades. Students will explore various genres, authors, illustrators, styles and movements within children’s literature as well as resources available for choosing and using quality literature with young people. Practical methodological approaches to encouraging children’s reading and writing development will be embedded within a genre study approach. Particular emphasis will be placed on mentor text and craft analysis approaches to teaching writing and the writing process.
