Using Children's Literature In The Reading/Writing Classroom

This course prepares prospective teachers to integrate reading and writing in a language arts program through the use of book selections that reflect quality writing in the genres typically found in children's literature. The course will provide students with sufficient background and knowledge in children's literature so that they may teach reading by using trade books, emphasizing process writing and developing thematic units. Language, literacy, and learning will be enhanced by integrating children's literature across the curriculum.
