Developing Children S Critical Thinking Through Picturebooks from the Author: Mary Roche. This accessible text will show students and class teachers how they can enable their pupils to become critical thinkers through the medium of picturebooks. By introducing children to the notion of making-meaning together through thinking and discussion, Roche focuses on carefully chosen picturebooks as a stimulus for discussion, and shows how they can constitute an accessible, multimodal resource for adding to literacy skills, while at the same time developing in pupils a far wider range of literary understanding. By allowing time for thinking about and digesting the pictures as well as the text, and then engaging pupils in classroom discussion, this book highlights a powerful means of developing children’s oral language ability, critical thinking, and visual literacy, while also acting as a rich resource for developing children’s literary understanding. Throughout, Roche provides rich data and examples from real classroom practice. This book also provides an overview of recent international research on doing ‘interactive read alouds’, on what critical literacy means, on what critical thinking means and on picturebooks themselves. Lecturers on teacher education courses for early years or primary levels, classroom teachers, pre-service education students, and all those interested in promoting critical engagement and dialogue about literature will find this an engaging and very insightful text.

Learning Communities In Educational Partnerships from the Author: Máirín Glenn. Learning Communities in Educational Partnerships shows how theory and practice come into lived interplay in social spaces where theory informs practice and practice turns into theory. Drawing on their own experiences of becoming a learning community, the authors introduce the ideas underpinning self-study action research. Through a series of first-hand practitioner accounts, the chapters describe and explain how to engage in processes of inquiry and establish learning communities, how to make space for professional conversations and how to develop living theories from within daily practice. The book shows how meaningful change can take place, both in educational improvements and also in more transformative professional learning, when educators are encouraged to draw on their own personal educational values and share their idea

Imagine That from the Author: David M. Considine. With the proliferation of visual technologies and the growing interest in media literacy, this book offers educators important new teaching skills. Rich in strategies and activities, it links outstanding children's literature to the development of critical-viewing and critical-thinking skills. Activities show students how to locate, identify, and interpret iconic information contained in illustrations - particularly those in picture books, where illustrations often contain ideas not addressed in the text. Understanding the concepts related to image, text, story setting, content, theme, technique, medium or style, design, composition, and page layout helps students discern pictorial communication in advertising, television, and motion pictures. Well-grounded in research and theory, this work not only offers educators essential training in teaching media literacy skills, it will also appeal to students and faculty in schools of library science and colleges of education.
