  • The Role of Children’s Fiction Enhancing the Curriculum through Literary Learning
    Literary learning could be defined as a set of skills allowing enriched engagement in society.  This includes the many language forms that assist in making meaning of literature types and the acceptance and value of this role in society. Thinking and emotions are connected with expression of language, which is itself a key aspect of our heritage.  Students learn and become involved in their individual learning once they become aware of this relevance to their own learning.  So, all teachers need to promote the importance of literacy as being fundamental to all areas of the curriculum (Todd 2010) and the future of learning (Loertscher 2012).  It is the development of competence that strengthens skills as associated grammar, and spelling fundamentals add to growth and life long learning skills gained by the student.Specific curriculum documents, such as the English K-6 Syllabus, the use of literature is prescribed, in order to fulfil the outcomes and objectives of the policy. 
  • The application of material that falls within the general descriptions of 'children's literature' is most appropriate to achieve those goals.
  •  The benefits of holistic learning are noted by many in research. "Integration of intellectual, social and emotional aspects" (Brooks & Brooks, 1993) is vital for successful learning. Children's literature with it's rich diversity of genres is a rich source of resources.
  • Research has demonstrated that the consolidation of the role of children's literature will produce benefits to the development of language, and thus literacy. Critical thinking will be enhanced, as will the learners' engagement in their learning.
  • The rich variety of material offered by children's literature stimulates language growth, and thus improves communication skills.

Graphic Novels

Barbara O"Ra[unzel's Revenge" and "Calamity Jane" have been very popular at our school with someyear 5 boys and surprisingly a little boy in Year 4 who is not a confident reader at all has taken to some graphic novels based on books by Agatha Christe. He has even chosen one to make into a board game for a Book Week competition. The Stormbreaker and other Anthony Horowitz GNs have been a great way into reading the novels too.MOREThis online bibliography seems to be a good starting point for investigating age-appropriate graphic novels in a school-library context: own personal recommendation for primary-aged students would be a graphic novel adaptation of Coraline by Neil Gaiman.MORE Graphic Novels: children’s books and website that are useful in engaging infants, primary and middle school students:• Finder, M.

(2010) An easy and interesting read about Vietnames-American, Maggie Ly who returns to Vietnam as a young adult to try to discover her ancestry.Baker's "Mirror" (2010). A lovely celebration of different cultures and how, at heart, we are all really the same.Gervay's "Ships in the Field" (2012). I really like Susanne Gervay. She never shies away from a difficult topic (here the refugee experience) but always highlights the hope to be found in life. This book is based on her life as a child of Hungarian refugees and the illustrator too, Anna Pignataro, has lived the migrant experience through her parents. A pignant, hopeful and beautiful picture book.Cornelius' play (based on Gleitzman's novel) "Boy Overboard: the Play" (2007). A great text for starting conversations on a number of social issues.Abdel-Fattah's lastest release (2012) "No Sex in the City". A very funny read. I really enjoyed this novel. I first read about it in the Dymock's catalogue. However, after I saw some girls fighting over who would be the first to borrow it from the library when I was doing some casual teaching one day, I knew I had to buy it and read it. Glad I did! It's about a Turkish-Australian woman trying to find Mr. Right in Sydney, without giving up her traditional Muslim values.MOREWhoever you are by Mem Fox a very simple text about the similarities and differences between children wherever they live. A great story for introducing discussions about other cultures with very young children, asking them to identify from the text and the illustrations about the things they see / hear that make us the same or different.The Littlest Refugee by Anh and Susanne Do presenting a refugee’s view of why they take to unsafe boats and risk everything to come to the safety of Australia. Written using simple and direct language with Bruce Whatley’s illustrations adding depth to the text.Hungry Ghosts by Sally Heinrich examines how a family adjusts to life in Australia. The novel looks at how each family member worked through their feelings of isolation, difference, acceptance and how do retain aspects of their old life that makes them who they are.A Long Walk to Water by Linda Sue Park interweaves the true story of Salva Dut with the fictional story of Nya drawing parallels between their struggles with life in Southern Sudan. Salva’s story set in the 1980s at the height the Sudanese civil war while Nya’s story is set in 2008. Nya’s story focuses on the other struggle the people of southern Sudan face constantly the search for water. YouTube has many clips about Salva’s story which complement the content of the novel’s Last Dancer by Li Cunxin gives the reader an insight into growing up in China during the time of Mao Zedong and explores the importance of following one’s dreams. It is available in both an adult and shorter version, suitable for Primary students.

A version of it is also available in a picture book – The Littlest Refugee by Anh and Suzanne Do, illustrated by Bruce Whatley, currently shortlisted for the CBCA awards.

Multicultural LiteratureMORE 'Does My Head Look Big in this?' by Randa Abdel-Fattah was the first piece of contemporary multicultural literature I read. I found this book an easy and engaging read, capturing the emotions associated with teen girls very well. It's main theme is 'difference' and also highlights the 'us & them' culture arising from ignorance and sheer bloody-mindedness. All this is addressed with light hearted humour which makes it extremely captivating. I have recommended to Year 6,7 & 8 girls who have all enjoyed it. Also extremely popular at our school with Year 6 is 'Parvana', 'Shawzia' & 'Parvana's Journey' about girls in living in Afghanistan during the height of the Taliban rule.

As a non-fiction picture book I like: first person account, images relate to words and help convey the meaning of the event, images dull colour (pale,brown,cream) while in Vietnam and on travel to Australia, 0n arrival in Aust - images in colour. Ends with Anh being awarded class captain role for following ___year (year5) at school. Told with humour - engages reader Asked my 23year old son to read it and his interpretation of images was that it was hard to tell whether Anh was Vietnamese or Caucasian! Book directed at primary age - it does not enter the latter part of Anh's life and issues he and his family faced. Good book to introduce issues of migration based on refugee status - Australia's association with Vietnam through war - Australia's association with Vietnamese now - how Vietnamese are very much part of our culture - food in particular - entertainment - Do is a TV presenter, comedian, author Would be a good book to begin a range of discussions about a number of historical, social, cultural issues.MOREMy Place by Nadia Wheatley is a non-fiction picture book that encompasses the changes that the same address in an inner city suburb of Sydney has gone through over time and also how the area became culturally diverse. The time frame is set out with each double page representing a decade since white settlement until the bicentennial year of 1988. Whilst the original book is not a new release it is still relevant to today’s teaching of Literature as it demonstrates an historical timeline with children and their surroundings as the main focus. A newer edition has been published to bring the timeline up to date. This book has been recognised in the new Australian curriculum in three strands of English and two strands of History for students in years 3-6.A short story to go with this comment: last week whilst teaching year 7 the importance of picture books, discussing the shortlisted books and discussing their significance to the journey of reading, the students had to remember their favourite picture book and explain to their peers why they remembered it. One student remembered My Place and he was able to speak for some time about how he loved the history side but also commented about the tree that remained in the park for entire story and how it seemed everything around it was changing. This point led us beautifully onto discussing the fact that picture books are quite complex and sometimes not as simple as they seem.ABC (2010). My place.
