Polling the Profs: A National Survey of Teachers of Children's Literature in Universities and Colleges.
McClure, Amy A.; Tomlinson, Carl M.
Journal of Children's Literature, v26 n2 p40-49 Fall 2000
Explores issues such as course organization, evaluation of student work, and major concerns of faculty and students about Children's Literature courses. Finds that the hypothesis that graduate and undergraduate children's literature survey courses would be significantly different was not supported. Reveals no indication that interest in children's literature as a university course is waning. (SG)
