Materials for Children
Happy Thursday! I hope you're having as much fun with your students as I am with the students enrolled in Materials for Children at Rutgers University (eCollege course).
Examination and evaluation of materials for children, birth through age fourteen, primarily in print, though with an awareness of digital options and alternatives. Emphasis on literary and artistic interpretations of picture books and other visual media, the integration of a range of materials into the educational process and the lives of children; multicultural resources for our global society; and, in particular, on nonfiction materials.
I created a Blendspace lesson to keep track of the resources shared throughout the week. I thought you and your students might have fun watching the book trailers and exploring the websites.
(I recommend viewing the Blendspace lesson here.)
P.S. What did you read aloud on the first day of school?
