What Alice Saw through the Keyhole: Visions of Children's Literature in Elementary Classrooms.
Roser, Nancy L.; Martinez, Miriam G.
Journal of Children's Literature, v26 n2 p18-27 Fall 2000
Presents one first-year teacher's experience with incorporating literature into her fifth grade class. Notes the lack of support from the administration and fellow teachers. Observes that when readers talk together about books, their "socially" constructed meanings can represent the range of their experiences, ideas, and backgrounds. Aims to understand what the goals of literature inclusion in elementary classrooms really are. (SG)
