Kiddie lit : the cultural construction of children's literature in America by Beverly Lyon Clark( Book )

14 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and held by 893 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Kiddie Lit, Beverly Lyon Clark explores the marginalization of children's literature in America - and recent signs of its reintegration - within the academy and by the mainstream critical establishment. Tracing the reception of works by Mark Twain, Louisa May Alcott, Lewis Carroll, Frances Hodgson Burnett, L. Frank Baum, Walt Disney, and J. K. Rowling, Clark reveals fundamental shifts in the assessment of the literary worth of books beloved by both children and adults. While uncovering the institutional underpinnings of this transition, Clark also attributes it to changing American attitudes toward childhood itself: a cultural resistance to the intrinsic value of childhood expressed through sentimentality, condescension, and moralizing."--Book jacket
Girls, boys, books, toys : gender in children's literature and culture( Book )

14 editions published between 1999 and 2012 in English and held by 885 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Girls, Boys, Books, Toys asks questions about how the gender symbolism of children's culture is constructed and resisted. What happens when women rewrite (or illustrate) nursery rhymes, adventure stories, and fairy tales told by men? How do the socially scripted plots for boys and girls change through time and across cultures? Have critics been blind to what women write about "masculine" topics? Can animal tales or doll stories displace tired commonplaces about gender, race, and class? Can different critical approaches - new historicism, narratology, or postcolonialism - enable us to gain leverage on the different implications of gender, age, race, and class in our readings of children's books and children's culture?"--Jacket

Raising key questions about race, class, sexuality, age, material culture, intellectual history, pedagogy, and gender, this book explores the myriad relationships between feminist thinking and Little Women, a novel that has touched many women's lives. A critical introduction traces 130 years of popular and critical response, and the collection presents 11 new essays, two new bibliographies, and reprints of six classic essays. The contributors examine the history of illustrating Little Women; Alcott's use of domestic architecture as codes of female self-expression; the tradition of utopian writing by women; relationship to works by British and African American writers; recent thinking about feminist pedagogy; the significance of the novel for women writers, and its implications from the vantage points of middle-aged scholar, parent, and resisting male reader
Talking about writing : a guide for tutor and teacher conferences by Beverly Lyon Clark( Book )

3 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is intended to serve as a comprehensive guide for those English teachers and tutors, peer or professional, who face the challenge of one-on-one writing instruction. Written in a conversational style, the guide addresses the questions of "what" and "how" to tutor, and includes numerous illustrative excerpts from the journals of practicing tutors. It is based on the idea that one-on-one instruction, a tradition as old as Socrates, has, for some time, been experiencing a revival among those involved in the teaching of writing. The emphasis on writing as a process, rather than merely a product, has helped create a need for such individualized instruction, one that must acknowledge that student writers--and their individual processes--differ greatly. Following an introduction, chapters are: (1) Setting Priorities; (2) Generating Ideas; (3) Organizing, Drafting, and Reworking; (4) Improving Grammar, Mechanics, Usage, Style; (5) Special Writing Problems; (6) Evaluating Writing; (7) Coach or Dictator?; (8) Getting Started; (9) Down to Business; (10) Constraints on Conferences; (11) Problems with Attitudes and Feelings; (12) Evaluating Tutoring; (13) Journals; (14) The Perils of Tutoring; and (15) Reaching a Broader Audience. Exercises, sample essays for evaluation, and a selected bibliography are included. (Nka)
