The Learning & Teaching of Children's Literature in Europe
Start date: Oct 1, 2009,
The project is to undertake a two-year investigation into the learning and teaching of children’s literature in Europe. The aim is to gather, analyze and disseminate information about the current role of children’s literature in schools and in children’s lives in Europe, focusing particularly on the 8-11 age group. This will involve a comparison of reading habits, learning and teaching methods, and the cultural place of reading. The aim will be to produce recommendations with regard to a) best practice in learning and teaching, b) criteria for the choice and range of texts selected for teaching in schools and c) strategies for promoting multicultural education and international (and particularly pan-European) awareness of children’s literatures. The project will also produce case study material for continuing professional development of teachers, a web site for discussion and dissemination, and a conference for academics and teachers from throughout Europe.
