Book Description:

Teachers and prospective teachers read children's books, but that reading is often done as a teacher - that is, as planning for instruction - rather than as a reader engaged with the text. Children's Books for Grown-Up Teachers models the kind of thinking about teaching and learning - the sort of curriculum theorizing - accomplished through teachers' interactions with the everyday materials of teaching. It starts with children's books, branches out into other youth culture texts, and subsequently to thinking about everyday life itself. Texts of curriculum theory describe infrastructures that support the crafts of inquiry and learning, and introduce a new vocabulary of poaching, weirding, dark matter, and jazz. At the heart of this book is a method of reading; Each reader pulls idiosyncratic concepts from children's books and from everyday life. Weaving these concepts into a discourse of curriculum theory is what makes the difference between going through the motions of teaching and designing educational experiences.

This book was awarded the 2009 AERA Division B (Curriculum Studies) Outstanding Book Award.
