The focus of this course is selecting and using children’s literature and related non-print media to support the elementary school curriculum. During our time together, you will become familiar with the elements, genres and applications of children’s literature as well as the resources available for elementary classroom teachers. Together we will construct criteria for the selection of trade books for educational and personal use. The role of digital media in children’s literature will also be explored.
