Children's Literature as an Important Tool for Education of Sustainability and the Environment
Baratz, Lea; Hazeira, Hanna Abu
International Electronic Journal of Environmental Education, v1 n2 p31-36 Jan 2012
Children's literature is operated and distributed on the basis of faith, whereby if there is a place for effective links between literature and society, then it will naturally be found first in children's literature. For the most part children's literature is goal directed and amongst its targets is the assimilation of socio-cultural values. The number of study hours for children's literature in the colleges for education is very limited, and only infrequently is the educator of the future awarded broad knowledge of children's literature during her studies at the college. Currently no study program has been designated for the connection between children's literature and sustainability and its derivatives and a method of integrating this subject into the field of literature. Due to the importance of children's literature in the assimilation of values and instilling of an ideological infrastructure which will become a way of life, it is appropriate to examine the findings of literary works in literature textbooks and before this the outline of the subject in the syllabus. One should introduce environmental studies into existing subjects and introduce environmental studies as a new subject in the syllabus.
