|LITR 308 - CHILDREN'S AND YOUNG ADULT LITERATURE|
(Formerly LITR 306) This course introduces the major genres of children's literature from both the oral and written traditions: folk tales, fairy tales, myths, legends, prose fiction (realistic and fantastic), verse, and picture books. The course aims at developing techniques for a close reading of representative texts. In addition, it may examine the influence of gender, class, cultural assumptions, and literary fashion on the writing, reading, and criticism of books for children. Although this course is designed specifically for perspective teachers of elementary and secondary schools, all literature majors are urged to enroll.
