ENE 5012: Short Fiction and Drama for Young Adults (3 cr.)
This course is designed to introduce students to works of short fiction and drama that depict experiences familiar to adolescents. Many of the works feature young adults as primary characters or explore the dynamics of family, in particular the relationships between children and parents; others examine the broader culture young people inhabit. The selections, both contemporary and classic, are representative of literature frequently read in middle school and secondary classrooms. Most importantly, we will examine strategies for effective instruction and criteria for making age-appropriate choices for reading. Students are expected to be active participants.
