This course will focus on the informal processes through which
children negotiate childhood and as a means of understanding how
children use folklore in their everyday lives to construct the
status quo as well as resist it. This course requires that you do
some fieldwork with children, emphasizing experience and service
learning. The final paper will combine library research with the
service learning participation at a community-based organization.
Service-learning combines the service ethic of volunteerism with
critical thinking skills and academic knowledge.
