Books for Boys–Class For Educators

on April 6, 2012

My second new class for educators is ready for registration with Seattle Pacific University SPIRAL Program. This class is entitled, Books for Boys!

This course will examine picture books, middle grade fiction, graphic novels/comic books, non-fiction, and poetry books with a focus on books that are high interest for boy readers. We will examine how to integrate the books into the classroom or library as a means of encouraging, inspiring, and providing role models in literature for our male readers in grades K-8. Each learner will create a personal bibliography of books for boys based on the needs of their educational setting and student ability level as well as a PowerPoint presentation to be shown to parents and/or other educators.

The course is a distance learning course and is for five credits. It is taught through Seattle Pacific SPIRAL Program. You can find out more, including how to register at Seattle Pacific Spiral. You’ll need to scroll to the middle of the listings for classes under Curriculum and Instruction to find Books for Boys.
