Summer 2017 quarter (Full Session)
Learn how adolescent literature meets the developmental needs of middle and high school ages (grades 6-12). We’ll look at the literature in historical perspective, study young adult development in reading, and consider genres with representative authors and selection criteria. Participants will read and critique several genres, developing a knowledge base of a variety of current authors, themes, and classroom uses. Course credits contribute to minimum coursework expectations for teaching endorsements in middle level humanities and secondary English/Language Arts.
