I am starting a new subject at uni called "Literature in Education" and I'm putting out the call for help.
What children's literature is in your school library? How is children's literature being used to enhance the education of children at all levels of schooling?
I am looking specifically at Contemporary Realistic Fiction for my first assignment. What are the current trends and themes in this area of children's literature? Can you suggest any current examples that are popular, relevant, and used in schools?
I appreciate your help! If you can post a link to this blog entry on your blog, or tweet a link to it so it gets to as many people as possible, that would be wonderful :)
Thanking you in anticipation.
