Children's Literature/Reading Methods II: A New Field Based Experience.
Gray, Mary Jane
Most reading methods courses do not provide many experiences in children's literature. Because teachers have experienced an elementary school setting in which free reading was discouraged, and because teachers teach as they were taught, this trend continues. The need for a second reading course at the undergraduate level is clearly apparent. Teaching in the content area of children's literature can be accomplished by the extension of the student teaching experience to a full day. Preservice students can work with small groups of children experiencing difficulty in reading, facilitating free reading and directed reading, and exposing the children to the listening experience. In addition, the development of trade book reading lists for content area lessons can be accomplished by student teachers. (KS)
