Summary
  • "Multimodal mediums such as picturebooks have been a source of continuing interest to educational scholars, yet research into the literary understanding of elementary school students has tended to focus primarily on written materials. Based on research with students in Grades 1 and 5, this study describes children's interpretations of and responses to a variety of contemporary picturebooks, specifically those that employ 'Radical Change' characteristics and metafictive devices. In approaching picturebooks as literature, Sylvia Pantaleo explores the ways in which they express artistic codes and conventions, and develop critical thinking skills, visual literacy skills, and interpretative strategies." "As well as analysing picturebooks and their place in the curriculum, Pantaleo discusses the broader implications of reading, viewing, and creating print and digital texts in schools. These activities, she argues, reflect the changing nature of communication and representation in the world of elementary school students. Pantaleo draws on postmodernism, social constructivism, and other theoretical frameworks as a basis for her study, and examines ways in which literature reflects the broader social and cultural context. Extensively researched and engagingly written, Exploring Student Response to Contemporary Picturebooks introduces new dimensions to discussions of the social nature of intertextuality and the pedagogical value of literature in the classroom."--Jacket
