ENGL 507 - Young Adult Literature

(3cr) This course takes as its focus the reading and teaching of adolescent literature. Through a study of both “classic” and contemporary young adult literature, students will learn how to evaluate this literature for their classrooms. Additionally, they will develop strategies for teaching these texts, including adapting plans for a diverse population of students. At the end of the course, students will be able to demonstrate a wide knowledge of both young adult literature and the critical and pedagogical conversations around it. They will have read, written about, and presented critical assessments of these texts and conversations. They will also have completed a major project of their own design and will have presented that project to their peers.
