The Jolly Postman Delivers: Dialoguing About Books With Children Through Letters, Blogs, & Vlogs
The Jolly Postman Delivers: Dialoguing about Books with Children Through Pen Pal Letters Creative Inquiry participants will have opportunities to read children’s picture books and tradebooks and dialogue through letters, blogs, and/or vlogs with students in elementary classrooms and libraries providing critical perspectives on quality children's literature. CI students will attend introductory sessions on picturebook characteristics and how to analyze picturebooks and tradebooks. Each group will learn ways to organize texts sets, critique, and model responses about books. Participants will write blogs or videotape vlogs on a regular basis throughout the semester. One group will be classroom oriented and another focus on library participants. Participants must enroll in ED 397. This project will extend beyond one semester, for a minimum of two semesters.
