READING, TEACHING, AND LEARNING: LITERATURE AND MEDIA FOR CHILDREN AND YOUNG ADOLESCENTS Engaging children in the process of literacy is fundamental to their academic success and engagement with the world around them. The ways in which we create these engagements is highly context depended - even more so in educational settings. What is intriguing about this engagement is why a child or young adolescent picks up, reads, and loves a particular book. The course is designed with readings, discussions, and assignments cause students to think about text, especially those for youth, differently and more critically than they have in the past and focuses on readings, discussions, films, and speakers, and applying what you are learning to your own life experiences and those of others.
