Source one is a girl named Elizabeth Eggington and source two is a boy named Henry Gibbs but the outfits they are wearing are very similar. In Source three Samuel Mather wrote a letter to his father at the age of 12, I think the letter shows how mature he is for his age and that Puritan children were forced to grow up really fast. Parents began to establish limits all in the effort to break a child's aggressive and assertive nature. Parents were to love and respect their children, although strict discipline was also enforced. It was not uncommon for parents to employ whips or belts to discipline children.
Questions for Discussion 1. I do not think this is generally the case for everyone, for many children are influenced by their parents since an early age—well before high school—to nurture a love for reading. 2. She means that the experiences of a teenager are very limited compared to the experiences offered by an ageless book, and I agree with her because by exploring the scope of those experiences—instead of the student’s—teachers could broaden their intellectual horizons more than they are now. 3.
I believe that this story will best target the children from age 8-12(early-teenagers) for following reasons: * The book is published with large font size characters and pictures which will favor the children readers. * The narration method of the story: The story uses simple words/ phrases and the 3rd person narrative to describe the emotions/feelings and thoughts of story characters, particularly Hana, George, and Fumiko, which are easier for young children to understand and also bring them a sense of “immersion”. * This is a true story describing the tragic history people nowadays never experienced. Besides, the characters (Hana and other children in the camp) in the story are of the similar ages of the targeted readers. Children at these ages will start to realize the definition of death and injustice.
Dr. Seuss is famous for writing children books that contain rhyming, imaginative characters, and off the wall story lines. Dr. Seuss’s “Oh The Places You’ll Go” is a prime example. When reading, “Oh The Places You’ll Go” from a child to an adolescent, your view of the book changes dramatically. The book merely means to a young child that life is full of excitement and to explore the many options that life may bring you. But as an adolescent, the book is trying to tell you that nothing comes easy in life and to choose your paths wisely.
The short story called, "The Most Powerful Question a Parent Can Ask..." by 'Neil Millar' shows the most respectful approach of parents to their children rather than "Be-ers and Doers" by 'Budge Wilson' in many ways. I feel that the story by "Neil Millar" is told in a calmer manner of speaking rather than the one written by "Budge Wilson". Everyone grows up differently but the effects grow depending on the matter of time when you are taught to become responsible. Every parent teaches their child different aspects at different times. Some are earlier than others and some must be later.
Not only is it important that public libraries have their doors open for educational purposes, but also for personal interests. Teenagers like games and activities that offer opportunities for them to express themselves in their own way. Having this option available for teens is very important. It helps keep teens connected to the library, and gives them peace of mind, so they feel comfortable going to the library for help. Activities for teens can be difficult to find, which makes it even more important for public libraries to provide them.
Before looking at the use of violence in the two literary pieces in particular, it is useful to discuss the use of violence in children’s literature in general terms. It is interesting to explore some of the reasons for why authors may choose to use violence in their writings for younger audiences. One of the reasons could be based on the belief that children seek for adventure and action in stories. Pilgrim and McAllister argue: ‘Young people want their reading materials to be filled with derring-do.’ Violence and action generally go hand in hand which could be one of the reasons for why it often appeals to children. Pilgrim and McAllister come up with yet another reason for why violence is often used in literature.
Clavell used his psychological knowledge on children to convey that humans can be easily persuaded to do something. For example, the new teacher in The Children’s Story knew things about the students without them having to tell her. In the story Clavell stated, “Good morning Sandra, and Sandra flushed deeply and wondered, aghast, with all the other children, HOW DID SHE KNOW MY NAME? and her heart raced in her chest and made it feel tight and very heavy” (Pg. 315).
• To find out how the gender roles of the men and women in the books affect the children in their primary and secondary socialisation. • Find out how children are/not aware of gender specific content of picture. Why I am interested in this topic? I am very interested in this topic because in the society in which I live in, boys and girls seem to have their own way of living in different aspects of their social life such as education, family, media, jobs and literature. A common past time for many young children is listening to stories read from books, particularly illustrated books.
Historical Works Scholars and practitioners concerned with young people and their literature can acquire a greater understanding of that literature and its role in the lives of children by studying both the history of childhood and the history of children’s literature. The historical context should include a reading of both popular and classical literature to appreciate the contributions of early authors and illustrators. To be considered historical, a novel must focus on a period that is earlier than its creation. The purpose of historical writing is to offer insight into people and events from the past. Historical details are as accurate as possible and informed by historical research.
