This is a research paper for an evolution of children’s and young adult literature.
During this class we have read, D’Aulaires’ Book of Greek Myths, The Hard Facts of the Grimms’ Fairy Tales, The Original Folk and Fairy Tales of the Brother Grimm: The Complete First EditionAlice in Wonderland, Sandman: Preludes and nocturnes (Volume I), Fables: Legends in exile (Volume I) , and The Hunger Games.
Imagine that you are the parent of a middle-school child who has been selected to contribute to a report that decides what your child’s class will be reading. (This distinct role will serve as a baseline for your observations and point of reference for this project.)
Write a research paper that focuses on what is meaningful, appropriate and/or disturbing to middle-school aged children. This paper should result in useful data that can ultimately be presented to the school board. Be sure to indicate how you might have responded to this question prior to taking this course and how you answer it now.
Refer back to specific lessons, readings, discussions, and assignments that have impacted your understanding of the debate over what children can or should read. As stated in the guidelines in Module 2, this paper should demonstrate an awareness of how our era’s views impact what is or is not deemed “appropriate.”
Analyze and evaluate crucial elements such as symbolism, morality, violence, fate, and justice found in children’s literature that you have created a strong argument for. Support your claims and observations with direct quotes from the readings and at least five outside sources to substantiate your position.
Present your case to the school’s Board of Education, detailing your observations and findings. Be sure to articulate a set of rules for “what is appropriate” that is logical for our current climate but also recognizes the limits of it.
