“In recent years, the AQEP has been promoting education based on children's literature, with, among others, the Jacinthe prizes, the Florilèges / AQEP prizes, literary chronicles and special reports on the reading of the magazine Vivre le primary. The idea of bringing together dynamic and inspiring resources in the field of children's books has now been realized. »It is in these terms that the association explains this novelty. on his website.
Twelve speakers will explain their vision of children's literature and its teaching, in addition to sharing their favorites. Also, about fifteen literary tables will inform participants of the free services that their bookstore, their publishing house or their organization offers in the community.
Thus, illustration, album without text, humor, theater, oral communication, writing situation, media literacy and character are some of the themes addressed in the workshops. We can consult the full program here.
