This basic textbook on the classifications and uses of children's literature in the elementary school is designed for pre-service teachers and undergraduate students in elementary education. Each chapter provides a fresh approach to familiar literary landscapes by examining each principle in turn, as it relates to classics old and new. Unlike other children's literature texts that are strictly genre-based, Literacy and Learning is founded on Outward Bound's ten design principles of Expeditionary Learning: Primacy of self discovery, Having of wonderful ideas, Responsibility for learning, Intimacy and caring, Success and failure, Collaboration and competition, Diversity and inclusivity, The natural world, Solitude and reflection, Service and compassion
