CEDUC 3364 Writing for Children and Young Adults

This writing course focuses on creating original works designed for children and young adults. It also integrates the use of computer programs and other technology designed to aid in mastering writing competence. Students study many writing forms and styles found in children's books, magazines, instructional materials, literary publications, and computer programs. Models of excellent writing are contrasted with models of writing in need of editing to highlight the differences between effective and ineffective writing. Students research information needed for writing, create original work, and critique the writing of peers. One draft of a piece of writing is edited and reworked to bring it to the point of submission for publication.
