LIT 2145 - Children's Literature

Children’s Literature provides a study of the major genres, themes, and critical concerns of literature written for children and young adults with special attention to the historical, social, and cultural contexts that have influenced literature for young people. Written reactions to texts and formal interpretations of the literature are integral components of the course. Students will also critically analyze the age-appropriateness of children’s books as well as strategies for writing about cultural, ethnic, religious, and societal implications and differences.
