EDUX 5240: FROM COVER TO COVER: ENRICHING THE CURRICULUM WITH STUDENT CREATED BOOKS

Course Description


EDUX 5240 (A, B, C, D).  This course takes a hands-on approach course for educators who wish to add enrichment and excitement to the curriculum in their classroom. The course emphasizes strategies for using student-made books to develop language, math and critical thinking skills. A wide range of book construction processes suitable for all grade levels will be explored. Students will use whole numbers and measurement, as well as dimensional figures and geometry to develop math skills. Geometric concepts of space and form will be explored with flexagon and geometric-shaped books. Whether teaching language arts, or any content subject, student made book construction provides a lifelong problem solving skill that leads to authorship and builds self esteem.

  • Develop a file of book making techniques such as: flexagon, tunnel, concertina, pop ups, piano hinge, rubber band binding, star shape, Frenchdoor, flag, tetraflexagon, and maze books.

  • Inspire students to develop language skills and have a sense of authorship

  • Enhance student motivation and creativity

  • Develop critical thinking and problem solving skills in students
