  • 2021-2022 First-Year Scholar: Lynn Nerly Auguste, Nursing

    • What is a home? What does it mean to us? This project is to examine how a home would be described and illustrated in children's literature. The concepts of home in children's literature will reflect the societal perspectives on what and how the society wants to deliver to children implicitly or explicitly. Through reading the children's literature, children also can (re) produce the social perspectives on home. The student will participate in analyzing the concepts of home embedded in children's literature

    • Students will be able to learn:

      1. data collection
      2. how to do documentation analysis and visual literacy analysis (how to do initial coding and seek focused coding).
      3. how to prepare for and submit to a conference/manuscript
    • The student will

      1. attend weekly meetings (virtual, in-person, or hybrid)
      2. assist to find the list of children's literature
