High School Students Research, Read and Write Children's Literature
Your feedback is important to us!
After viewing our curriculum units, please take a few minutes to help us understand how the units, which were created by public school teachers, may be useful to others.
In spite of the fact that numerous units have been written on the subject of teaching children's literature, there are none written on the topic of teaching children's literature to high school students. At a time when there is grave concern about the literacy of school children, it seems crucial to teach teens the importance of reading to young children since many teens are themselves parents or have young siblings to whom they could read. Many of the at-risk high school students that I teach missed or were short-changed when it came to being read to, when they were children. Teaching a unit focusing on children's literature for high school students would give them a chance to enjoy, some for the first time, or revisit, the plethora of children's books that are available today, and arm these students with the rationale, skills and resources for reading to the children in their lives.
