So I was looking through the course catalog for the university that I attend and I saw that my school offers a course in Young Adult Literature. I thought this was so cool, so I've decided to share with you the course description:
"A critical study of literature, including nonprint media, for young adults, focusing on helping prospective teachers develop familarity with young adult literature and how it may be used in the middle school and high school classroom, stressing gender roles and multi-cultural issues."
And for anyone who's curious, there are three prerequisites to taking this course: Conventions of Reading and Writing; Histories and Texts; and Theory, Meaning and Value.
I would love to take this course, but even if I stay in the English program I have no idea if I will even be able to take the prerequisites, let alone the actual course. But I just thought it was awesome that my school offered a course on something that I read everyday. Do any of your schools offer similar classes?
