Our PGCert Education – Children’s Literature course gives you an overview of the turbulent and unique journey that children’s literature has taken since its earliest days to the present from a range of theoretical perspectives.
You will acquire the understanding of how texts are constructed using a range of narrative modes. And how this aspect of your subject knowledge can be used in the primary classroom to develop children’s abilities to read a range of texts for pleasure.
You will also explore a variety of texts currently available including:
- classic texts
- picture books
- novels in verse form
- literature in translation
- digital texts.
Our teaching staff are experienced and active in researching and teaching in the area of children’s literature.
You will have access to our Oxford Brookes specials collections, a new collection of rare and antiquarian children’s books and, when onsite, specialist-trained drama sessions.
