Editors: Janice Bland and Christiane Lütge
Publisher: Bloomsbury Academic
Book Description: Bringing together leading scholars and teacher educators from across the world, from Europe and the USA to Asia, this book presents the latest research and new perspectives into the uses of children’s literature in second language teaching for children and young adults. Children’s Literature in Second Language Education covers such topics as extensive reading, creative writing in the language classroom, the use of picturebooks and graphic novels in second language teaching and the potential of children’s literature in promoting intercultural education. The focus throughout the book is on creative approaches to language teaching, from early years through to young adult learners, making this book an essential read for those studying or embarking on second language teaching at all levels.
It is high time that the role of children’s literature as a powerful change agent […] in developing learners’ literacy skills, intercultural awareness, and critical and creative thinking as upheld in this book was given due recognition in second language education.
