This course is an introduction to children’s and adolescent literature in its three general literary forms: the short story (including myths, legends, fairy tales, and folk tales), the novel, and poetry. Stress is placed upon critical thinking, critical reading, and composing. This course will explore works of children’s and adolescent literature from ancient times to the present, analyze the literary elements of these works, assess their value for both children and adults, and examine the historical periods and cultural environments in which they were written. This course is beneficial for English majors, students planning to transfer to a university, parents, and future elementary and secondary teachers. This course is designed for students eligible for the honors program.
