ENG 511: Contemp Appr to Young Adlt Lit

Class Program
This course provides students with the knowledge and skills to elect, interpret and use recent approaches to young adult literature (e.g., interdisciplinary, multicultural). We will survey the theories and practices of curriculum integration and develop frameworks for cross-curricular and cross-cultural learning activities and assessment. The class will model thematic units as organizing principles by focusing on one topic each semester (e.g., war and peace, environments, heroes and anti-heroes).
