Teachers have been using children’s literature to teach across the curriculum for years. This course will provide participants with a renewed sense and understanding as to why it is critical to use quality literature to provide students with content area information and new perspectives of key concepts across the curriculum. Using children’s literature to teach across the content areas provides students with the opportunity to connect with characters and issues outside of the textbook in a more engaging manner. Participants will focus on creating original activities and lessons across the curriculum using children’s literature.
