Application: Annotated Booklist and Quality Checklist

 

Throughout this course, you will be learning about the significant role that literature can play in children’s lives. Along with studying each of the genres of children’s and adolescent literature, you will be examining specific criteria used for identifying quality and excellence.

 

Based on your growing knowledge in these areas, you will develop:

 

  1. An Annotated Booklist of children’s and adolescent literature
  2. A Quality Checklist that can be used to evaluate children’s literature in each of the genres that you will study

 

These documents will help encapsulate what you have learned and serve as a resource for future reference. Both the Annotated Booklist and the Quality Checklist will be due at the end of Week 5. You will be able to submit these at the end of Week 2 for the instructor’s non-graded feedback.

 

Each week, you will be asked to read/review/annotate a specific number of books, consider the criteria that indicates quality related to the genres that you are studying, and then add these to the appropriate document.

 

In Week 5, you will send in your book list for a grade.

 

If you quickly open and read the Application section for each week, you will see a description of the books you need to review each week.  Here is a short list of what is required each week, to give you an idea of the final length of your Annotated list:

 

  • 3 books for Week 1
  • 5 book for Week 2
  • 3-5 poems for Week 3
  • 1 book for Week 4
  • 1 book for Week 5

 

The lists you can choose from are explained in the Application directions each week.

 

At the end of Week 5, you will submit both the Annotated Booklist and Quality Checklist you have created during the course to receive a grade on both assignments. The links to these two forms are below:

 

Annotated Booklist Form
Quality Checklist Form

 

Part 1: Beginning Your Annotated Booklist and Quality Checklist

 

This week, you have been introduced to the field of children’s and adolescent literature, a field that is offers a multitude of opportunities for learning and growth. You have been reading about two important aspects of this field—quality across the genres and looking through the lens of cultural diversity.

 

Annotated Booklist

 

For this week’s Annotated Booklist, read:

 

  • One chapter book and one picture book written by Book Creators listed in the “Writers and Illustrators to Look for” booklist (p. 34 of the course text)
  • One book from the booklists at the end of Chapters 3–9 of the course text that is marked with the sun icon, indicating that it includes some aspect of diversity. However, before you choose a book from this list:
    • Consider the following quote from your text: “Cultural diversity is wider than race, ethnicity, gender, sexual preference, or exceptionalities; it also involves values, attitudes, customs, beliefs, and ethics” (p. 29).
    • Take time to think about what defines your personal culture.
    • Consider choosing a book that was written by someone who shares a cultural background similar to your own in an essential way, or a book whose storyline involves your cultural background in an essential way.

 

After you have read the books, respond to the guiding questions listed on the Annotated Booklist Form.

 

Quality Checklist

 

Before you begin writing your checklist, reflect on what you have learned from:

 

  • Chapter 1 of your text
  • “10 Quick Ways to Analyze Children’s Books for Racism and Sexism”

 

Then, based on what you have learned about children’s and adolescent literature this week, use the form to describe in your own words at least five characteristics of quality children’s and adolescent literature in general, and five characteristics of quality culturally diverse literature.

 

Note: Evaluating the quality of any book entails not only assessing it for racism and sexism but also making sure that class, sexual orientation, and/or exceptionalities are portrayed without bias.
