Opening the World to Children: Using Books to Develop Problem-Solving Strategies.
Burnett, Jeanie
This paper shows examples of thought-provoking picture and chapter books that can be used as springboards for discussing, analyzing, and solving authentic problems by pre-school through middle-level children in diverse settings. The paper begins with a description of a conference presentation which introduced participants to the notion of using books to develop problem-solving strategies. It then discusses specific examples of works in children's literature that deal with: everyday classroom problems (sharing, taking turns, etc.); difficult issues (violence and abuse); sensitive issues (stealing, lying, and cheating); and peace education issues (respecting others, their property, and their ideas). Contains 17 selected references. (RS)
