Course Description

This course will examine picture books, middle grade fiction, graphic novels/comic books, non-fiction, and poetry books with a focus on books that are high interest for boy readers. We will examine how to integrate the books into the classroom or library as a means of encouraging, inspiring, and providing role models in literature for our male readers in grades K-8. Each learner will create a personal bibliography of books for boys based on the needs of their educational setting and student ability level as well as a PowerPoint presentation to be shown to parents and/or other educators.
