EDU 538 Cultural Literature

The course takes a transcultural/global approach to the promotion of literacy. Focusing on juvenile and children's literature - as well as on literature applicable to adolescents - the course exposes course participants to world literature. Within an in-depth global exploration of culture and values, students will glean intercultural awareness, stretching literacy beyond U.S. national borders. Using sound instructional practice and theory, participants will read novels written by international child protagonists. Participants will generate annotated bibliographies that will enrich classroom libraries and promote literacy at the elementary, middle, and high school levels.
