EDU 4206 - Teaching Writing with Children’s Literature

Credits: 4
Candidates engage in analysis and interpretation of adult and children’s literature to identify mentor texts as models for composing and teaching personal narrative and explanatory informational writing. Building on the reading-writing connection, candidates apply a writer’s lens to analyze elements of craft and literary devices in mentor texts and plan literature-based craft lessons that address varied disciplines, purposes, genres, and audiences. Candidates explore authentic inquiry from a developmental perspective, learning strategies for generating focused questions, locating information in multimodal sources, analyzing and evaluating evidence, synthesizing information from varied media, and organizing relevant ideas for  presentation. All instructional decisions are grounded in an understanding of writer, textual, and contextual factors, with the goal of designing the optimal learning context for each writer.
Note: For admitted Elementary Education Majors only.
