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.
