Internationalism In Children's Literature: Understanding China: Appreciating Its Literature. A Unit.
Page, Ire Adams
A unit has been developed that educators can use to promote teachers' and librarians' understanding of the literature written for children in China. The purpose of the unit is to help teachers and librarians develop some fundamental ideas about China as a background for understanding the English translated versions of Chinese children's literature. The program is divided into three parts: (1) understanding China, (2) appreciating its literature, and (3) a brief summary of China's history in chronological outline. The program also provides learning activities that are the outgrowth of four specific objectives: to determine how the literature reflects the social, political, and educational aims of China; to examine and assess the literature in light of certain literary elements; to compare the translated stories of Chinese authors with similar stories written by non-Chinese authors; and to develop methods for sharing these books with children. (A bibliography on understanding China and booklists of Chinese children's literature published in China and in the United States are attached.) (Author/RL)
