This page includes some children’s literature resources as well as activities for a composition classroom following a genre studies or CHAT model. These texts were created for my students, but they are also available for use by anyone interested in texts for children and/or critical approaches to literature and writing.
Children’s and Adolescent Literature Reading Guides
To correspond with all class readings, these guides provide students with context and background information, critical resources, possible avenues for further consideration, and suggested enrichment or daybook activities. Sharing these resources offers students the opportunity to take responsibility for their own learning, while also providing guidance on possible approaches to the study of children’s texts.
