EDUC 505 - Teaching of Literature for Children


3 Credits
Overview and critical analysis of genre, literary elements and authors of literature read by elementary children. This will include fantasy, traditional literature, picture books, biography, realistic fiction, information books, historical fiction and multicultural literature with consideration of issues such as censorship and gender. Master’s degree students engage in the evaluation, collaboration and redevelopment of children’s literature to meet the needs of current and future learners affected by new curricular requirements. Project-based fieldwork is required where schools are using the new literature standards from the Common Core State Standards and from the International Reading Association and the National Council of Teachers of English.
