American Children’s books
Choose two children’s books.
Analyze the books using the ten points/categories in the handout.
Put the title of your book on top of your paper, be sure to include the author, publisher, illustrator, and year the book was published.
Provide at least five examples from your book per category listed in the handout.
Ex: 1. Check the illustrations:
1. in the book I chose there is a picture of XYZ that is stereotyping Native Americans.
2. In this book the mother is always wearing an apron and doing the dishes
3. XYZ is stereotyping XYZ because XYZ
2. Check the Storyline:
Your book might not hit every point, you can put N/A if you are absolutely sure there are no examples of this point in your book. If you do not believe your book includes examples of more than eight of the points we are looking to analyze, then you need to choose another book.
Assignments should be submitted as an editable document, not a pdf or photo (see the syllabus for more information).
If your computer is not compatible with d2l you can use the computer labs on campus.
