Student Work Syllabus Schedule Pictures Links

bulletUsing Microsoft Word or Access, create a database of children's books that you read for this course.  The database must include at least 100 books, some from each of the categories (genres) studied in class. Arrange the database in any format that is usable to you. It will most likely be best to construct the database using a "landscape" layout.
bulletAt the end of the book database, add an annotated collection of sites on the World Wide Web that you will be able to access for literature-based lesson plans and information about children's literature.

Include the following information for each book.   Turn in a disk copy to the instructor.
