Electronic Collaboration: Children's Literature in the Classroom (
This is an article I wrote based on a project I conducted with a graduate level Children's Literature class. The purpose of this project was to explore the potential of electronic discussion to increase students' breadth and depth of thinking about issues in complex children's literature. Another goal was for teachers to extend their experience into the classroom by engaging their own students in similar projects.
