The Historical Development of Children's Literature in Turkey
Karagöz, Beytullah
Universal Journal of Educational Research, v6 n5 p848-856 2018
This study aims to examine the historical development of children's literature in Turkey. In this context, developments and changes in the field of children's literature have been evaluated according to the chronological approach. In doing so, the authors and their works, important turning points of Turkish child literature history, were evaluated. The research is in the literature survey model and the status is determined in the study. It has been commonly known that there are four basic approaches in the history of Turkish children's literature. The first three groups of these schools evaluated the children's literature within the context of giving advice, being instructive, and lecturing. In the understanding that develops after the 1980's, children's literature is considered as an important field of art in terms of improving the child's emotional world, and improving his thinking and inquiry skills.
