2015 and a new course

huckpicHere’s the reading list for this term’s course: Huck Finn, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, To Kill a Mockingbird, Our Town, Dave at Night, Fifteen, The Outsiders, The Bluest Eye, Feathers, American Born Chinese, Donald Duk, kira-kira,¬†and Where Do You Stop?.

Are some of these titles new to you? Well then, keep an eye on this blog to learn more about each of them. Our focus will be on how children and adolescents are portrayed in American fiction, and I hope we can come up with some useful insights.

Happy reading to all!

General Response to Readers Are Leaders Blog-PB

I have enjoyed reading some of the postings on this website. The great thing about graduate school, is the opportunity to read other students opinions and ideas on the process of teaching and learning. I have also learned a lot about the YA Lit available to me as a teaching professional.
