Young Adult Literature   0900-0950 MWF

This course is designed to introduce you to a range of literature for adolescents as well as provide you with a variety of critical tools for reading, discussing, and writing about the literature. Through the readings, lectures, films, and discussions (both in small and large groups) we will develop our multicultural awareness, our connections to popular culture by way of the texts, our ability to write and perform thoughtful, insightful prose, and our ability to examine the literature from a critical lens.
