Inviting multiple ways of critically engaging with literature, this text offers a fresh perspective on how to integrate children’s literature into and across the curriculum in effective, purposeful ways. Structured around three "mantras" that build on each other—Enjoy; Dig deeply; Take action—the book is rich with real examples of teachers implementing critical pedagogy. The materials and practical strategies focus on issues that impact children’s lives, building from students’ personal experiences and cultural knowledge to using language to question the everyday world, analyze popular culture and media, understand how power relationships are socially constructed, and consider actions that can be taken to promote social justice. Written for teachers and teacher educators, each chapter opens with three elements that are closely linked: classroom vignettes showcasing the use of literature and inviting conversation; three key principles elaborating the main theme of the chapter and connecting theory with practice; and related research on the topics and their importance for curriculum. Other chapter features include key issues in implementation, suggestions for working with linguistically and culturally diverse students, alternative approaches to assessment, and suggestions for further reading. A companion website to enrich and extend the text includes an annotated bibliography of literature selections, suggested text sets, resources by chapter, and ideas for professional development. Changes in the Second Edition: Voices from the Field vignettes include examples from inspiring educators who use trade books to promote critical thinking and diversity Updated chapters include information on new technology and electronic resources New references in the principles sections and new resources for further study New children’s books added throughout the chapters as well as to the companion website

"Clark's study of the critical disregard for children's books since the end of the nineteenth century - which draws on recent scholarship in gender, cultural, and literary studies - offers provocative new insights into the history of both children's literature and American literature in general, and forcefully argues that the books our children read and love demand greater respect."--BOOK JACKET.

Here you'll find a collage of distinguished voices from around the world, offering their own perspectives and experiences with difficult issues: censorship, violence, raw images in picture books, depictions of minorities, gender issues, political correctness, ethical heroes, and more. You'll hear from some of the best-regarded and controversial authors writing for and about children today in essays that are bound to provoke, challenge, move, and perhaps even outrage you. South African author Beverly Naidoo talks about censorship and apartheid. Allan Baillie discusses his choice to write about Pol Pot's reign of terror. Brian Jacques reflects on his own childhood amidst the violence and poverty of Liverpool. Judith Gilliland reveals her motivation for depicting the gritty lives of children in Cairo and Lebanon. Charlotte Huck examines reactions among animal rights groups to her Princess Furball. You'll also hear from parents, teachers, librarians, academicians, illustrators, booksellers, and self-appointed censors. And you'll hear from children themselves. Given the large gap in texts for the serious study of children's books, these are voices no one concerned with quality children's literature can afford to ignore.
