Research & Professional Resources in Children's Literature: Piecing a Patchwork Quilt.
Short, Kathy G., Ed.
Noting that few syntheses of research on children's literature exist, this annotated bibliography guides teachers, researchers, and librarians who are searching for research on a particular topic, strategies for using literature in schools, or children's books on a particular topic. Section I of the book focuses on children's literature research (research reviews, books, selected articles, other published studies, and dissertations) published from January 1985 through December 1993 and includes a discussion of the procedures for identifying, listing, and annotating that research. Section II highlights professional journals that educators can use to locate reviews of children's literature, lists of books on particular topics, articles on using literature in the classroom, and research on children's literature. Section III contains annotations of many professional books on children's literature which focus on theoretical foundations, literature discussion and response, broad surveys of children's literature, sociopolitical and cultural issues, genre studies, literature across the curriculum, collections of teaching activities, and bibliographies of children's and adolescent literature. Each section of the book contains research or professional resources aimed at elementary and middle school contexts, specifically preschool through grade 8. (RS)
