Using children's and young adult literature is a great way to enhance a variety of college classes in fields as varied as biology, computer game development, political science and history. This collection of new essays by educators from a number of disciplines describes how to use such works as Where the Wild Things Are, The Tale of Peter Rabbit, Swamp Thing, Percy Jackson, and Harry Potter to introduce complex concepts and spark interest in difficult subjects. The contributors describe innovative teaching strategies using dystopian fiction, graphic narratives, fairy tales and mythology. Often overlooked or dismissed by teachers, children's literature can support student learning by raising levels of academic rigor, creativity and critical thinking.

The all new essays in this book discuss Black cultural retellings of traditional, European fairy tales. The representation of Black protagonists in such tales helps to shape children's ideas about themselves and the world beyond their limited experiences. Allowing them to see themselves in traditional tales strengthens connections with the world and can ignite a will to read books representing diverse ethnic and cultural characters. Also discussed is the need for a multicultural text set which includes the multiplicity of cultures within the Black Diaspora.The tales referenced in the text are rich and diverse in perspective, illuminating stories such as Aesop's fables, Cinderella, Rapunzel and Ananse. Readers will see that stories from Black perspectives adhere to the dictates of traditional literary conventions while steeped in literary traditions that can be traced back to Africa or the diaspora.

More than 6.5 million children in the US receive special education services; in any given community, approximately one child out of every six will get speech therapy, go to counseling, attend classes exclusively with other children with disabilities, or receive some other service that allows him or her to learn.

Over the past 15 years, there has been a pronounced trend toward a particular type of picturebook that many would label "postmodern." Postmodern picturebooks have stretched our conventional notion of what constitutes a picturebook, as well as what it means to be an engaged reader of these texts. The international researchers and scholars included in this compelling collection of work critically examine and discuss postmodern picturebooks, and reflect upon their unique contributions to both the field of children’s literature and to the development of new literacies for child, adolescent, and adult readers.

The years 1830–1914 witnessed a revolution in the manufacture and use of books as great as that in the fifteenth century. Using new technology in printing, paper-making and binding, publishers worked with authors and illustrators to meet ever-growing and more varied demands from a population seeking books at all price levels. The essays by leading book historians in this volume show how books became cheap, how publishers used the magazine and newspaper markets to extend their influence, and how book ownership became universal for the first time. The fullest account ever published of the nineteenth-century revolution in printing, publishing and bookselling, this volume brings The Cambridge History of the Book in Britain up to a point when the world of books took on a recognisably modern form.

Children, Film and Literacy explores the role of film in children's lives. The films children engage in provide them with imaginative spaces in which they create, play and perform familiar and unfamiliar, fantasy and everyday narratives and this narrative play is closely connected to identity, literacy and textual practices. Family is key to the encouragement of this social play and, at school, the playground is also an important site for this activity. However, in the literacy classroom, some children encounter a discontinuity between their experiences of narrative at home and those that are valued in school. Through film children develop understandings of the common characteristics of narrative and the particular 'language' of film. This book demonstrates the ways in which children are able to express and develop distinct and complex understandings of narrative, that is to say, where they can draw on their own experiences (including those in a moving image form). Children whose primary experiences of narrative are moving images face particular challenges when their experiences are not given opportunities for expression in the classroom, and this has urgent implications for the teaching of literacy.

`It is clear that we need to do more to help children who have been victims of crime. This book will enable people to do exactly that - help people get started with some tried and tested advice and techniques to help young victims.'---Sara Payne, Victims' Champion Being victimized can leave a young person feeling frightened, lacking in confidence and emotionally vulnerable. Some young people turn to crime themselves in response to their experience. Why Me? is a photocopiable resource and DVD designed to help children and young people come to terms with and recover from the experience of victimization. Made up of exercises and activities, it is designed for those working individually with young victims aged 8 or 9 and above, and can be adapted for groupwork. It is fully flexible, and activities can be picked according to the needs of the individual. Following restorative justice and protective behaviour principles, the exercises encourage the young person to explore their feelings, needs and strengths, and to recognize their support network. Activities include drawing, making graphs, writing letters and brainstorming. The resource also includes guidance on how to run the programme, including worked case examples. The DVD contains real-life stories of young people who have been victimized and includes a demonstration of some of the activities in action. Why Me? is an essential resource for a wide range of practitioners working with young people, including social workers, youth workers, teachers, police, education welfare officers, youth offending team staff, and victim support and witness service workers.

Some people think that writing for kids is easy – short books, no big words, non-existent attention spans and then fill in any gaps with pictures. But nothing could be further from the truth. Children are the harshest critics imaginable. Give a grown-up a copy of Ulysses to read and they’ll pretend to like it just so they don’t look stupid. Give a copy to a kid and they’ll tell you straight up that it’s no good. Writing for children is much harder than writing for adults because it’s all about catching their attention and keeping it – whether for five pages or five hundred. And being restricted by theme, vocabulary, length and a wandering attention span makes things infinitely more complicated. But creating books for children is also one of the most rewarding activities any writer can experience. To kids, stories are everything – they fuel their imaginations and provide endless hours of entertainment.

Children and young people with complex mental health needs are increasingly being cared for within specialist mental health care settings, either in the community or in in-patient facilities. With rapid social developments, it can be difficult for carers and practitioners to keep track of the law in this area. This book provides a guide to the law relating to mental health care for children and young people, their rights and entitlement to service, and discusses important issues in clinical and social care practice such as parental responsibility, Gillick competency and capacity, emergency intervention and detention, assessment of mental illness and confidentiality in practice. A chapter written by Mary Mitchell considers the diagnosis and management of complex mental illness in young people, and a concluding chapter discusses changes in the law. Jargon-free and accessibly written, this is an invaluable guide for professionals working in child and adolescent health and social care, social workers, youth workers, social welfare policy makers, medical professionals, teachers, educational professionals and students, as well as advocates for children and young people.
