Children's Literature has been taught in undergraduate classrooms since at least the early 1970s and has grown to become a staple of English literature programs. Children's literature classes are typically among the most popular English lit course offerings and often draw in students from other disciplines. It is easy to understand why; children's literature classes promise students the opportunity to revisit familiar works with fresh eyes.
Educators from various backgrounds will gather to discuss the advantages, challenges, and methods of using Journal of the Plague Year: A COVID-19 Archive (JOTPY) in the classroom. Historian of education, Victoria Cain and Boston Public School teacher Claire Tratnyek have developed instructional materials and tutorials for educators wishing to use JOTPY to enrich their students' learning experiences. Digital and Public History scholar Jim McGrath from Northeastern University will also be joining.
