Cultural and racial representations in children’s texts reflect the norms of the society in which they are produced. They advocate ways of being and model ways of relating to others. This unit examines how children’s texts construct cultural otherness, and how they approach questions of difference and sameness, fear and acceptance. Students will consider how texts position readers to understand and respond to ideas about personal and national identities.
