ENG 250 Young Adult Literature: Educating the Imagination

3 Credits

This course, especially recommended for prospective teachers of English, explores a representative sampling of literature suitable for study in secondary schools, such as award winning books intended for junior high youth, classic and contemporary coming-of-age fiction, other novels dealing with significant social issues, one or two plays, and a selection of poems. Attention is given to the historical development of literature for young people, its roles as mirror and shaper of culture, and to critical approaches, organizations, and instructional resources relevant to teaching literature in the new millennium. Students are encouraged to develop at least one special-interest paper on non-required texts.

Prerequisite(s): ENG 101  (with a minimum grade of C) or placement into ENG 102 .
