LS 102 Children`s Literature (3)

This course is designed to introduce students to the field of children's literature.  The course will cover the theories, history, and types of children's literature.  Emphasis will be on giving students the ability to evaluate and select appropriate literature for various ages of children. The course is recommended for elementary education and library science majors and at some institutions is a requirement for those majors. Course material, however, will be broad enough to accommodate anyone with an interest in the field of children's literature.
