Batman and Batwoman Go to School: Popular Culture in the Literacy Curriculum.
Marsh, Jackie
International Journal of Early Years Education, v7 n2 p117-31 Jun 1999
This case study investigated the introduction of a theme from popular culture into a sociodramatic role-play area in a northern England Nursery Infant school, focusing on its effects on 6- to 7-year olds' literacy activities. Findings indicated that the incorporation of themes from popular culture into the curriculum motivated children whose interests are usually excluded from the curriculum. (Author/KB)
