Children's literature in the elementary school by Charlotte S Huck( Book )

12 editions published between 1968 and 1993 in English and held by 588 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In "Children's Literature in the Elementary School" Charlotte S. Huck advances the view that exposing children to good quality children's literature is a vital element of successful school reading programs. Books for children should be 1) works of high literary quality, 2) useful in the curriculum, and 3) appeal to the young reader. Volumes that address this subject have traditionally been tasked with meeting a wide variety of objectives in higher education: if adopted by education departments methodological matters are stressed; under the school of library science bibliography is the object; and under the English department textual analysis is emphasized. This text is sufficiently broad as to adapt itself to any one of these approaches, and should serve as a valuable guide for teachers, librarians, and elementary educators in any capacity

Extending the Dimensions of Research in Response to Literature Response in an Elementary School Setting by Janet Hickman( Book )

1 edition published in 1980 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An ethnographic study of children's response to literature at a range of developmental levels and in a variety of natural classroom contexts involved comprehensive classroom observations of 90 children aged five to eleven years representing a range of abilities. Data were collected during a four-month period on daily log sheets, then later classified into (1) listening behaviors, (2) contact with books, (3) acting on the impulse to share, (4) oral responses, (5) actions and drama, (6) making things, and (7) writing. Examples of students' responses were compared according to age level differences, and teacher strategies of manipulating contextual settings were categorized. Among the connections identified from the data were that the direct accessibility of a book seemed to be of primary importance in children's willingness to express any response to it at all, and that the most powerful feature of classroom contexts was their manipulation by teachers.

Inventing American girlhood : gendered pedagogies in women's memoirs, 1950-1999 by Elizabeth Marshall( )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In & ldquo;Inventing Gendered Childhoods & rdquo; I examine memoirs written by women in the 1990s who came of age in postwar America in order to trace how girlhood developed as a separate category from childhood. Although girlhood is often posited in scholarship and everyday life as the time-bounded period of adolescence, I argue that it is better understood for the purposes of Education research as a cultural space and identity that girls are compelled to occupy, and in which they are trained through various means. I demonstrate that the meaning of childhood as a gendered experience emerges in a range of cultural locations and institutions, including but not limited to schools. Through memoirs such as Susanna Kaysen's Girl, Interrupted, Dorothy Allison's Two or Three Things I Know For Sure, and bell hooks' Bone Black, women make visible a range of surreptitious cultural lessons and in the process re-read and counter the repressive girl-rearing practices that framed their own coming-of-age. In particular, women memoirists offer alternative pedagogies that blur the line between adulthood and childhood, tutor us about the insufficiency of the time-bound and gendered identities that the school imposes, and finally disperse the work of & ldquo;pedagogy & rdquo; throughout the culture. This project contributes to the debates around girls and education by offering an alternative archive for feminist reflections on girls and schools in the form of women's memoir
Children's use of fiction and nonfiction literature in a kindergarten classroom by Brenda Sue Harvey( )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Within the frameworks of emergent literacy and response to literature, the purposes of this study were to investigate the role of the teacher for facilitating children's meaning-making with fiction and nonfiction literature and to investigate children's literacy behaviors as they interacted with fiction and nonfiction literature. Using observational fieldnotes, interviews, audio-recordings, video-recordings and collections of children's writing, the researcher collected data from one kindergarten classroom over a period of four months. A comparative description was made between the patterns of children's talk/social interaction, voluntary/free response, reading behaviors and writing behaviors as related to both fiction and nonfiction literature. Findings indicate that the teacher supported children's meaning-making by encouraging collaboration among the children and by orchestrating time and space within the classroom. She also facilitated children's growing understandings about fiction and nonfiction literature by modelling various meaning-making techniques as she read aloud. These techniques included: (1) relating the reading to the children's prior experiences; (2) explaining, defining and/or extending terms within the text; (3) reviewing and/or reminding children of previously read text; (4) modelling the use of illustrations; (5) encouraging children to predict and read; (6) teaching conventions of texts; (7) questioning children about content; (8) involving children in the book; and, (9) omitting portions of the text. She intuitively used varying techniques depending upon the genre she read. Findings also indicate that the children, having had frequent and varied experiences with both genres, engaged in a variety of meaning-making strategies such as creating elaborate, narrative stories related to the pictures in nonfiction texts, supporting peers' reading and writing through varied types of assistance and engaging in private lessons with both fiction and nonfiction literature. The children also incorporated characteristic features of both types of texts into their writing. It is a common notion in the educational community that young children are not successful with nonfiction texts. However, findings from this study seem to indicate that young children can successfully read and make sense from both fiction and nonfiction literature
