Id: 041159 Credits Min: 3 Credits Max: 3


This course can be applied to the education minor. The purpose of this course focuses on the development of a critical lens that examines the cultural authenticity of multicultural children's literature and the impact of cultural, ethnic, linguistic, gender, (dis)ability, social class, and religious diversity in children's literature on the teaching and learning of young children with diverse backgrounds. Students in this course will also learn about the notion of "culturally sustaining pedagogy" through the use of multicultural children's literature to understand and support children who have been traditionally underrepresented in elementary classrooms.
