CI 467 Children's Literature
This group is an online discussion forum for students in CI 467 at the University of Illinois to share thoughts and reflections on children's books we read.
This is a private group. Members must be invited or approved by the group's moderator. This group meets in real life. This group is for adults only.
As you respond to the literature, yo…more
[close] As you respond to the literature, you may include responses related to characters, illustrations, plots, styles, themes, perspectives on life and living, memories and feelings the work evokes, etc. You may want to include what it was about the work or about your life experiences that may have led you to react the way you did—especially for works in which your initial reaction is something like: “I can’t connect/relate to this character, book, time period, etc...” Include specific examples from the book and from your life! Consider reasons why you respond in the way you do to particular texts. Remember there is no one correct response—no pre-determined, correct meaning you are supposed to uncover. There are, however, more or less thorough and supported reflections and responses. Your reflection should be between 400 and 600 words. When reflecting do not assume the role of a teacher, using this book with his/ her students.
