CRIN S77 - Literature for Adolescents

(3). Corequisite(s):  CRIN S01 , CRIN S05 , S06, CRIN S07 , and CRIN S11  

In this course students read, discuss, and write about literature written specifically for adolescents, books that reflect adolescent coming-of-age issues, cover a range of genres, and represent the best authors in the field. Students study and apply contemporary ways of interpreting literature that range from New Criticism to Cultural Studies, including Archetypal theory, Structuralism, Post-structuralism, Reader Response, the Black Aesthetic, and Feminism. The course addresses ways in which literature for adolescents can be used successfully in middle and high school classrooms to teach students to become better readers, writers, and critical thinkers. Designed for current and prospective teachers and librarians, the course is also intended for others interested in relating to adolescents and adolescent development.
