This course is taught by Professor Richard Giso.. Students study the benefits of reading to children while learning about the origins and genres of children’s literature for ages birth-eight. Wide reading of children’s books builds the foundational knowledge necessary to select, evaluate, research, review, and share children’s literature across early childhood settings. The course emphasizes as well how children’s literature reflects a wide range of ways to support anti-bias/anti-racist education and how children’s literature may be used to support early literacy and social emotional development and to promote social justice.
