Overview

"PEDAGOGICALLY," Glenn Edward Sadler writes, "literature for children, as a subject for instruction, has passed through its adolescence; Alice has managed to grow up Under Ground." Commissioned in response to a four-year survey of teachers, the essays in this collection reflect the growing sophistication of scholarly work in this burgeoning field.

Thirteen essays in the first part highlight issues of canon, pedagogy, genre, and period. In the second part, fifteen experienced teachers describe in detail their undergraduate courses, workshops, and graduate seminars, revealing what works and what doesn't. Subsequent sections examine selected advanced programs of study around the United States, assess two well-known collections of children's literature, and provide a comprehensive list of resources for classroom use and scholarly research. The volume concludes with a lively dialogue among Maurice Sendak, Dr. Seuss, and the editor of the book.
