Course content

Our PGCert Education - Children's Literature course gives you an overview of the turbulent and unique journey that children's literature has taken since its earliest days to the present from a range of theoretical perspectives.

You will acquire the understanding of how texts are constructed using a range of narrative modes. And how this aspect of your subject knowledge can be used in the primary classroom to develop children’s abilities to read a range of texts for pleasure.

You will also explore a variety of texts currently available including:

  • classic texts
  • comics
  • novels in verse form
  • literature in translation
  • interactive texts.

Our teaching staff are experienced and active in researching and teaching in the area of children's literature.

You will have access to our Oxford Brookes specials collections, a new collection of rare and antiquarian children's books and, when onsite, specialist-trained drama sessions.
