Students will examine many of the issues surrounding young adult literature, including censorship, appropriateness, and strategies for reading and using the literature in the classroom. Students will learn to apply a variety of critical approaches to reading literature including reader-response, ethnic and gender criticism, and other cultural theories. In addition to traditional print, students will also learn to apply reading strategies to graphic and film texts. (Fall/Odd Years)
