Karen J. Sanchez-Eppler (Section 01)


Children’s books are a site of first encounter, a doorway to literacy and literature. This course will offer both a history of book production for child readers in England and the United States and an exploration of what these first books can teach us about the attractions, expectations, and responsibilities of reading. While a large online course, activities will include many more intimate spaces including small group projects and class-time collaborations, as well as writing feedback circles.
