Rating : 4.6/5 (631 Download)

Download Free Challenging and Controversial Picturebooks PDF by Janet Evans Full Book and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2015-06-05 with total page 356 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: It is often assumed that picturebooks are for very young readers because of their emphasis on the illustrations and their scarcity of text; however, there are increasing numbers of picturebooks where the age of the implied reader is questionable. These are picturebooks whose controversial subject matter and unconventional, often unsettling style of illustration challenge the reader, pushing them to question and probe deeper to understand what the book is about. In addition to the book challenging the reader, the reader often challenges the book in an attempt to understand what is being said. These increasingly popular picturebooks work on many different levels; they are truly polysemic and worthy of in-depth analysis. They push the reader to ask questions and in many instances are intrinsically philosophical, often dealing with fundamental life issues. Challenging and Controversial Picturebooks examines these unconventional, non-conformist picturebooks, considering what they are, their audience and their purpose. It also considers: Children’s and adults’ thoughts on these kinds of picturebooks. How challenging and unsettling wordless picturebooks can play with the mind and promote philosophical thought. What creates non-conformity and strangeness ... is it the illustrations and their style, the subject matter or a combination of both? Why certain countries create, promote and accept these picturebooks more than others. Why certain picturebooks are censored and what factors are in play when these decisions are made. The role of publishers in translating and publishing these picturebooks. Children’s creative and critical responses to strange, unsettling and often disturbing visual texts. This inspiring and thought-provoking volume explores the work of a number of highly respected, international picturebook experts and includes an exclusive interview with the legendary Klaus Flugge, Managing Director of Andersen Press, one of the few remaining independent children’s book publishers in England. It is an indispensable reference for all interested in or working with picturebooks, including researchers, students in higher and teacher education, English advisors/inspectors, literacy consultants and classroom teachers.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Small world play offers a wide range of learning opportunities for young children. Acting out narrative and ideas through the manipulation of small or miniature equipment, tools, toys and objects helps children to respond to their environment. Play becomes representative of real-life situations and is a medium through which children can explore their own feelings about these events and experiences in a safe and productive way. The frequent inclusion of sensory elements in this play also deepens experiences. Small world play is rich in possibilities for specific, thematic, learning, such as gathering information about spaces, positions, colours and cultures. Small world play is entertaining, challenging, motivating and allows children to use their imaginations and decide on their own play choices. Many practitioners find it challenging to continually renew the play environment, but this book suggests ideas for how to ensure a meaningful play content that replicates environments or scenarios that children can connect to, using a large variety of resources from natural materials to specific props. Presented in the accessible, practical and flexible 50 Fantastics format, Judit Horvath's book is a compendium of ideas that will ensure you get the most out of small world play in your setting, without over stimulating and distracting the children involved.

Book excerpt: This book analyses the interplay between storytelling (with specific reference to oral retellings of authentic picture books), language learning, culture and emotions in the EFL pre-school and primary classroom. Using a multidisciplinary approach, it applies oral narrative studies, as well as research on shared reading with children and literature in picture books, to foreign and second language teaching theory and practice, while also discussing the impact of EFL storytelling on intercultural understanding. Although specifically conceived for teaching English as a foreign language, most contents apply to foreign/second language teaching to young children in general.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Model Compositions for Primary Level 1-6 series is especially written with young learners in mind and is aimed at exposing them to composition writing in a very user-friendly and enjoyable manner on topics related to their everyday experiences as well as close to their hearts. The model compositions are carefully selected based on the understanding of how a young mind learns, thinks and feels. The topic for each model composition is drawn from the experiences, thoughts, ideas and feelings of young learners. The themes are presented in different writing styles. This series provides ample and consistent practice for young learners for every level of primary school. The variety of themes also enables the learners to be exposed to different topics and areas to write well. The first three levels are already published and the next three levels will be completed soon. A learner who starts to practice from Level 1 to Level 6 will have covered 1000 model compositions which will no doubt provide a very solid foundation for excellent writing once the learner moves up to junior high school. The vocabulary bank of the learner will also increase tremendously across a wide variety of topics and themes. Also, embedded in this gem is a good selection of children’s poems and haiku! Idioms, similes, collective nouns and animal sound enhance and enrich the writing mastery as well as the sophistication of expressions of the young learners as they not only grasp models of sentence structures but also learn to transform their ideas using meaningful vocabulary and common expressions. Each composition imparts the underlying values and positive attitudes for character building, living a meaningful life and contributing positively to the community, hence making a positive difference wherever the learners may be.
