ENG 100 - Children's Literature
Children’s Literature is a wide-ranging introductory course which includes the history of literature for children and a continuing discussion of the ways our culture and history have defined and created what children may or may not be and what they may or may not read, enjoy, or understand. Students will develop criteria for the selection and evaluation of literature for children at different developmental stages. Students will explore current debates in and around children’s literature, scholarship, classroom use, and publishing. This course features multicultural materials and touches on a variety of media, including film, cartoons, television, and print. Though many students who take the course are, or will be, working with children, the course addresses children’s literature from a literary perspective, discussing texts from theoretical as well as a pedagogical framework. A major aim of the class is to introduce students to recent and emerging authors in order to broaden familiarity with current material available to young people.
