education;
· the character of Anne and her relationships, particularly in regards to the
changing nature of childrearing, parenting, and the family; the role of the
imagination and child speech; the importance of friendship and children’s
culture; and changing cultural visions of child/teen development;
· adaptations of Anne in popular culture, including tourism, film, television,
dolls, etc.;
