EDLA430 Cross-Curriculum Uses of Children's Literature
This unit is designed to help educationalists recognise the values of using literature in many aspects of the curriculum. Ways of developing literature-based reading programs will be discussed, as well as ways of choosing and using literature which would support such programs. The development of the use of literature in non-humanities areas such as mathematics and science will be outlined and practical workshops in such areas will be undertaken. The unit will also give participants guidelines for evaluating literature for use in other curriculum areas.
