RDG 511 - Children’s Literature

(Cr: 3)
This course will explore the enormous impact that literature-based reading has had on our students and programs. The integration of reading strategies with literature will be discussed. As children’s literature is being included as the centerpiece of reading and writing instruction in the elementary grades, literature has become a powerful force in language arts instruction in schools. A variety of literary forms will be explored including picture books, folk tales and fairy tales, fantasy, realistic fiction, historical fiction, and poetry. Activities, content, and materials are related to the current Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks for English.
