Summary

Children's literature is a rich source of information for teachers to use in helping elementary school students learn to become knowledgeable and active citizens. Seventy-four children's books are described in terms of their citizenship or law-related content. Lesson ideas and, in some cases, complete lesson plans are offered that creatively focus on the citizenship building potential of each book, and a variety of motivational teaching methods is suggested. The citizenship concepts of authority, justice, responsibility, privacy, property, participation, diversity, and freedom are highlighted; and a table of contents, organized into three grade level groupings (kindergarten through grade 8) and presented in the form of a grid, indicates which concepts appear in each of the 74 selected books. A second table of contents similarly organized shows which of 35 subject areas are covered by the books. A citation, citizenship concepts, subject areas, grade and reading levels, and a synopsis of the story are presented for each book. Specific lesson ideas include use of discussions, films, role playing, and literature reviews. Three cartoon strip illustrations are included. (JHP)
