     CHILDREN'S LITERATURE (INF 322T) is a survey course in the evaluation, selection, and proper and creative use of media with children. 


Course Aims and Objectives: 

It is my hope that this course will form the basis of your enhanced appreciation of children and children's media today and in the future.


Specific Learning Objectives:  At the end of the course, the student will:

  • Know the physical, social, psychological, and developmental needs of children ages birth through age 12, and how children’s literature (books and media) can help to meet their needs.
  • Gain an appreciation of the history of children’s literature and children’s book illustration.
  • Know the curricular and reading interests of children, ages birth through age 12.
  • Know about the various genres of children’s literature and how to select them.
  • Know how to select books and media for children at various ages of their development.
  • Know the developmental stages of a child’s learning to read and write.
  • Know about the role literature plays in helping children to adjust to crises in their lives.
  • Know how to help children to become responsible and intelligent users of media.


Format and Procedures: 


This course is primarily a lecture class with some class discussion. I will use PowerPoint, videos, websites, and other media to illustrate the information in the lectures.  I expect students to attend class regularly, and to respect the rights of other students to learn.  During the class lectures, I expect students to pay attention to the lecture and not carry on conversations with fellow students.  Cell phones and other electronic communication devices need to be turned off or set to vibrate; if a student has an emergency and needs to make a telephone call, he/she should leave the classroom to make the necessary telephone calls.  I expect students to read the required children’s books and textbook materials, as well as the materials I will post to Blackboard as support for the lectures.  I also expect students to check the Blackboard course site regularly for updates and communication from me and my TA.  I expect students to bring their course packet to class each week because it contains outlines of many concepts and ideas presented in the lectures. 

I expect that for the three regular tests, students will be present and seated no later than 6:15 p.m. in order to take the test.  Students arriving after 6:15 p.m. will need to take the final exam as their “make-up” for the regular test.  For the final exam, I expect students to be seated by 7:15 p.m. 


Feedback Statement:


I will post all course grades to CANVAS.  In order to see which test questions you have missed after each test, you will need to email my TA to set up an appointment during his office hours.  The tests will not be allowed out of the faculty office. When you visit the office, you may look at your test paper and answer sheet and see which questions you missed, but you may not take notes on the questions or answers, and you may not take your test or answer sheet out of the office.  You may ask my TA questions and email me about questions you might have.  I will resolve any conflicts over test grades.  I welcome students’ email communications or telephone calls to discuss personal issues and needs, and to consult with me about course work.  Please include INF 322T in the subject line of your email message.   


My Assumptions:


  • It is my assumption that students in my class will arrive at the classroom on time for the lectures and for the tests. 
  • It is my assumption that students in my class will follow all class rules, be courteous to one another and to me and to my Teaching Assistant. 
  • It is my assumption that students will arrive on time for appointments with me and with my Teaching Assistant.



 Course Requirements:   Class attendance and participation policy:

  •  Every student has the right to learn as well as the responsibility not to deprive others of their right to learn.
  • Religious Holy Days:  By UT Austin policy, you must notify me of your pending absence at least fourteen days prior to the date of observance of a religious holy day. If you must miss a class, an examination, a work assignment, or a project in order to observe a religious holy day, I will only give you an opportunity to complete the missed work if you have informed me of your religious holy day/s at least fourteen days in advance of the holy day, and if you make up the test either in advance of the holy day or within a reasonable time after the absence.  It is the student's responsibility to email me to inform me of the religious holy day and to make arrangements for making-up any test you will miss during your absence.
  •  Every student is accountable for his or her actions.
    •  In order for you to get the most out of this class, please consider the following: 
      • Attend all scheduled classes and arrive on time. Late arrivals and early departures are very disruptive and violate the first basic principles listed above.
      •  Please do not schedule other engagements during this class time.You probably wouldn't appreciate it if I did!  I will try to make class as interesting and informative as possible, but you need to take responsibility for attending class and learning the material.. 
      •  If you have trouble hearing the lecture or media presentation because of distractions around you, quietly ask those responsible for the distraction to stop. If the distraction continues, please let me know.  It is often impossible for me to hear such things from my position in the classroom. 
      •  Please let me know immediately if you have any problem that is preventing you from performing satisfactorily in this class.
  • Ground Rules for participation in discussions or activities: All student contributions to the discussion are valued in this course.  I expect my students to be respectful of other students and their opinions.
  • Civility statement and code of conduct:  I expect students to be respectful to me, my TA, and to the other students in the class. 


Course Readings:


All books are available for purchase at the University Co-op (Textbook Department), Austin TXbooks (2116 Guadalupe),  at Book People, Barnes & Noble, and at many other bookstores in Austin.  Books are also available on Reserve at the PCL Reserve Department.  Many of the required books are also available on loan from the Austin Public Library and other area libraries, and for purchase at Half Price Books and other discount book outlets. Because books are so expensive, students may wish to share the cost with friends in the class or plan to use the books on reserve at the PCL. You do not need to bring textbook and children’s books to class with you.  It is desirable for you to have the course packet with you at each lecture.  


VERY IMPORTANT: At or before mid-semester, the campus bookstores begin returning books to publishers.  Be sure you get the books you need before mid-semester.  This is YOUR responsibility!  The course readings are required, so it is up to you to insure that you have access to them.


COURSE CALENDAR:  I will post the course calendar to our Blackboard course documents and include the calendar also in the course packet.    


TEXTBOOK:  ESSENTIALS OF CHILDREN’S LITERATURE, 8th ed., (2013), by Kathy G. Short, Carol Lynch-Brown, & Carl M. Tomlinson.  You do not need the “My Lab School” edition.  The regular 8th edition is okay! (See reading assignments in the Course Calendar.)


Course Packet:  A course packet will be available for purchase at the University Duplicating Service, Texas Union, Room 2.124.  Please watch for an email message from me about when the packet is ready for purchase.  The hours for the Texas Union Copy Center are 8:00 a.m. to noon and 1:00-5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, except for campus holidays.

Go to: https://utexas.instructure.com/ .  Login in with your UT-EID and password. You must use your UT-EID to access it. 

  • ·  ECHO CENTER—Lecture Capture Recordings:   

          This class is taking part in a lecture capturing experiment. As part of this experiment, audio and video material presented in class will be recorded and made available to you for review via Blackboard.  Links for the recordings will appear in the EchoCenter section of the menu to the left of the center screen on the Blackboard page for this class.To watch a recording, simply click on the EchoCenter link, find the recording you want (by the
date of the lecture) to view and press play.  You can learn more about how to use the Echo360 Lecture capture system by watching this tutorial: 
http://bit.ly/SUglCN  or original URL: http://echo360.laits.utexas.edu:8080/ess/echo/presentation/726ae289-f82e-4998-b496-0edb63962dd2 .

          Please remember that this is a trial of the lecture capturing system, so an issue might arise that could prevent material from being made available in a timely fashion or at all. Although every effort will be taken to keep the system running, UT and I do not guarantee the availability of these recordings. Attending class is the only way to insure your viewing of the professor's presentation.  You can find additional information about the           lecture capture system at: 
http://sites.la.utexas.edu/lecturecapture/ .


  • Grading Procedures:

       The grading scale for this class will be as follows:                






C +
C- 1.67 70-72
D+ 1.33 67-69
D 1.00 63-66
D- 0.67 50-62
F 0 0-59



CR/F or CR/NC registration:

Students who are taking the class CR/F or CR/NC must earn at least a 60 average to earn a CR.  An X (Incomplete) will be given only in cases of extreme personal problems, medical problems, or hardship, and in cases in which the student has received permission from Mrs. Lukenbill to complete the class work after the scheduled time.  An X can only be given when the student is missing only one major quiz grade at the end of the semester.  All course grades will be posted to Blackboard.


Grades will be based on:
(a)  Quiz I—33.34%
(b)  Quiz 2—33.33%
(c)  Quiz 3---33.33%
(d)  Optional Final Exam



The final exam is a comprehensive exam that is optional for students who have taken all three tests and who are happy with the average of those three grades. However, the final is required for any student who has missed a test.  If you missed a test, the  grade you make on the final exam becomes your test grade for the missed test. 

If you have taken all three of the regular tests, you make take the final to try to raise your grade.  If you make a higher grade on the final exam than your lowest regular test grade, the final exam grade will replace your lowest test grade.  However,  if you make a lower grade on the final than on your lowest test grade, I will drop the final grade, but only if you have taken all three of the regular tests!.  So the final can only benefit you if you’ve taken all 3 regular tests.



If one of your classes has uniform exams (departmental exams) and those exams conflict with our class exams, your professor in the class with the uniform exam is obligated to provide a make-up exam for you in that class.  See the University policy on uniform exams (departmental exams) at http://registrar.utexas.edu/schedules/129/finals/uniform


  • Q drop Policy :
    The State of Texas has enacted a law that limits the number of course drops for academic reasons to six (6).  As stated in Senate Bill 1231: "Beginning with the fall 2007 academic term, an institution of higher education may not permit an undergraduate student a total of more than six dropped courses, including any course a transfer student has dropped at another institution of higher education, unless the student shows good cause for dropping more than that number.”



  • PASS/FAIL OR CR/NC GRADES:Undergraduate Students who are taking the class Pass/Fail (CR/F or CR/NC) must earn at least a 60 average to earn a CR.  

          Graduate Students who are taking the class Pass/Fail  (CR/F or CR/NC) must earn at least a 70 average to earn a CR.



    An X (Incomplete) will be given only in cases of extreme personal problems, medical problems, or hardship, and in cases in which the student has received permission from me to complete the class work after the scheduled time.  An X can only be given when the student is missing only one major quiz grade at the end of the semester and when the student has a compelling health or personal issue that prevents him/her from completing the course work.   


  • All course grades will be posted to Blackboard’s gradebook.


IMPORTANT GRADE POSTING INFORMATION:  After all quizzes, the final exam, and extra-credit assignments and volunteer work have been evaluated, grades will be posted to the Blackboard gradebook. 



There will be three regular tests and an optional comprehensive Final Exam, which is only optional if you have taken all three regular tests.  If you have missed a test, the final exam is your make-up exam.  The tests will have slightly different percentage values.  The first test will be worth 33.34% of your course grade, the second and third tests will be worth 33.33% of your course grade.  These exams will be objective in nature. The questions for tests will be taken from material introduced, assigned, discussed, viewed, or listened to or viewed in class lecture periods,from assigned readings in the textbook (ESSENTIALS OF CHILDREN'S LITERATURE, 8th ed.) as well as from the assigned children's books, assigned material in the course packet, course documents posted to Blackboard’s course documents. 


At regular tests
, students must be seated and taking the test no later than 6:15 p.m.  Students who arrive after 6:15 p.m. will be considered absent for the regular test and must take the comprehensive make-up exam on December 16th at 7 pm.  Students who miss one of the three regular tests must make up the grade by taking the final exam.  NO EXCEPTIONS WILL BE MADE.  Students who do not miss a regular exam may choose to take the final exam to try to raise their grades and we will use the three highest grades to calculate your final grade.

If one of your classes has uniform exams (departmental exams) and those exams conflict with our class exams, your professor in the class with the uniform exam is obligated to provide a make-up exam for you in that class.  See the University policy on uniform exams (departmental exams) at  http://registrar.utexas.edu/schedules/139/finals 


FOR THE FINAL EXAM, SCHEDULED ON MONDAY, December 16, 2013 from 7:00-10:00 p.m., you need to plan to be seated by 7:00 p.m. to take the test.  Plan your time accordingly!  For the exam, you will need to review all assigned readings, including all children's books assigned, course packet readings, course documents posted to Blackboard, and Essentials of Children's Literature, 8th ed., as well as all lecture material for the semester.  Do not ask me to give you the final exam early or at a time different from the class exam.  I must follow UT’s final exam regulations.  See:  “Regulations governing the administration of examinations (General Information Catalog, Chapter 4) require that no semester examinations be given before the examination period begins, and that the index of final examination times be followed for classes that have an exam.”   http://registrar.utexas.edu/students/exams/policies or at http://registrar.utexas.edu/schedules/139/finals 




After each regular test (not the final exam), you will be given an opportunity to see the test questions during our TA’s office hours or by appointment.  The actual exams will only be available for you to see during office hours or by appointment with our TA between the time each test's grades are posted to Blackboard’s gradebook and the time of the next test.  You must email our TA to make an appointment to view your test paper and answer sheet to see what you missed.  This is the best way for  you to correct your misconceptions or discuss your grade with us. After Quiz 2 is given, you may no longer see your Quiz 1 results; after Quiz 3 is given, you may no longer see your Quiz 1 or Quiz 2 results.  Before the final exam, you can only view your Quiz 3 results.  If you need special accommodations for viewing your test paper, you need to communicate with me and our TA so that we can work out a suitable solution for you.



  • · I encourage all students to complete the work for at least one extra-credit can earn a total of four extra-credit points for the semester.  Extra-Credit points are added to your
       course average, so they can make a big difference in your course grade.


  • ·  VOLUNTEER WORK WITH CHILDRENThe report on your volunteer work, signed by your supervisor, must be turned in on November 26, 2012. In order to earn a MAXIMUM of TWO extra-credit points, you may choose to use children's literature in volunteer work with children for a minimum of TWENTY HOURS in an institutional setting, such as Wooldridge Elementary School where I was the librarian or another elementary school.  Other organizations that need help are BookSpring (home of the RIF program and teen-mother literacy programs as well as Reach-Out-and-Read (ROR); Any Baby Can (many different programs—see Blackboard’s Course Documents for more information); Helping Hands Home for Children and The Settlement Home (residential centers for children).  The Salvation Army Children's Center needs people to read to children and help with homework.  For the Love of Christi Center works with children who have suffered a loss in their family, and the Ronald McDonald House, and Children's Hospital of Austin work with children who are ill.

              If you wish to volunteer in another organization, I must approve the organization before you can get extra-credit for your work.  The organization must provide supervision of your work with children, and you must include reading to or use of literature with children.   


  • ·  There are three options for earning 2 points of extra-credit for working with children:
    •  If you submit a report of 20 hours of verified, supervised volunteer work with children, you can earn two points of extra-credit.  See Blackboard‘s folder in “Course Documents” in the folder on Volunteer Opportunities for approved sites for volunteering with children.  To qualify for the volunteer extra-credit, you must submit a signed, verified report of the hours you volunteered with children in a supervised setting.  To get a signed, verified report, you need to request such a report from your volunteer supervisor two weeks in advance of the deadline.  Submit this report to me at the time of our third test on November 25, 2013. 
    • If you submit a report of supervised mentoring of a student at Wooldridge Elementary with a detailed paper about your experiences as a mentor with children, you can earn 2 points of extra-credit.  Submit this paper to me at the time of our third test on   November 25, 2013. In order to be chosen as a mentor at Wooldridge Elementary, you must apply and complete a criminal background check through the Austin ISD Partners in Education site.  You must visit with your assigned mentee at Wooldridge Elementary School once a week throughout the semester except during school holidays or student testing. 
    • If you submit a report of 20 hours of verified, supervised volunteer work in a school library helping the librarian in a public school library with sharing literature with children, assisting students in research, helping with literacy fairs, book fairs, and the RIF program in the library, and helping to shelve books for the librarian, you can earn two points of extra-credit.  You will need to submit a detailed report at the end of the semester on what you have done and the hours you have volunteered, signed by the school librarian.  See Blackboard’s Course Documents, and check the folder on Volunteer Opportunities.  Click on School Library Volunteer Work for more information.This report must be submitted to me in class at the time of the third test on  November 25, 2013.
    • ALL EXTRA CREDIT VOLUNTEER WORK REPORTS (signed and verified by the volunteer supervisor) MUST BE TURNED IN AT THE TIME OF THE THIRD TEST ON November 25, 2013.  If you cannot be in class on November 26, 2012 at Quiz 3, you need to make other arrangements with me to turn in your work before that date.  NO LATE WORK WILL BE ACCEPTED.  I need time to evaluate all of the work you turn in for extra credit.  Grades for extra-credit will be posted to Blackboard’s gradebook before the final exam.
    • Just submitting extra-credit work does not insure that you will get the credit.  I will evaluate each paper and each volunteer report carefully to see that it complies with the requirements for the extra-credit point/s.


  • EXTRA-CREDIT ASSIGNMENT PAPERS:  See Blackboard’s Assignments for details of each assignment. The following requirements apply to all the written assignments:  
    • The Extra-Credit Papers may require the reading of additional children’s books listed as “Recommended” books on the textbook spreadsheet in the course packet and posted to Blackboard’s course documents.  


    • Any reference to outside sources you cite in your papers must be only to resources available on the web or available via the online databases at the University of TX at Austin.  I do not accept the use of Wikipedia as an information source.  I must be able to access all of the resources you used for background information online.  Therefore, you must provide citations of the title and official URLs for the websites  you cite, or provide the citation and persistent link [Permalink] to any articles from the University of Texas Library’s databases. Students who choose this option are bound by the University’s policies on plagiarism: http://deanofstudents.utexas.edu/sjs/scholdis_plagiarism.php. If a student copies from another student or from other resources, it will be a violation of the University’s policy on plagiarism, and the offending student will LOSE A POINT from their course average and will be reported to the Dean of Students’ office for disciplinary action.


    • References to passages in the children’s books must be documented by your citing the exact page and paragraph number within the children’s book/s.

We will leave as soon as last student completes his/her exam.)   Remember that the FINAL EXAM is optional for students who have taken the 3 regular tests.  If you took all three regular tests, your final exam grade (if higher than one of your regular test grades) will replace that lowest test grade with your grade on the final exam, regardless of percentage value.  Mrs. Lukenbill follows University regulations about final examination administration. 


LOCATION:  TO BE ANNOUNCED--SEE FINAL EXAM SCHEDULES POSTED THROUGHOUT THE CAMPUS.  STUDENTS NEED TO BE SEATED AT 7:00 P.M. TO BEGIN EXAM ON TIME.    Make your plans accordingly. Leave an empty seat between you and your nearest neighbor.
