EDUC 13 Disability in Children's Literature

In this course, we will explore how disability is represented in contemporary children’s literature for middle-grade readers. Using educational, medical, and social lenses, we will critically consider the portrayal of students with various disabilities and others in their lives (teachers, parents, siblings, peers) in select children’s books, and discuss and determine how such books might be used for teaching and learning. Reading is one essential way that students learn about the world. Can children’s books be used to learn
and teach about disability? Are students with disabilities represented accurately in children’s books? Are they portrayed as having equal educational opportunities?



Distributive and/or World Culture


The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
