English 789/889:  Teaching Young Adult Literature

Adolescence, for many students, seems to be a period during which love of reading dies. In fact, studies reveal that “less than one-third of 13-year-olds read daily” and “only 16 percent of high school students” identify as “high frequent readers” (Gilmore 47; Newkirk 117).  But there is hope in the field of popular young adult (YA) literature!  In YA lit, adolescents can find books that match their interests and reading levels.  In this course, we’ll explore how YA literature can be used to foster lifelong readers.  We will read widely among genres of young adult literature (including both contemporary YA works as well as canonical literary works written for an adult audience but deemed appropriate for secondary students), focusing on the particular skills of literary criticism and theory required to establish a developmentally appropriate literature curriculum at the secondary level and to link young adult literature to canonical literary traditions.  Students should prepare themselves for quick-paced reading, discussion, research, and assignments in varied formats, from written responses to booktalks.

Fall 2021 Special Topic & Course Details: Reading as Writers: Exploring the Short Stories of Anton Chekhov & Flannery O’Connor

We’ll begin with Anton Chekhov (1860-1904), a Russian writer who was also a medical doctor, and whose work influenced the short story form as we know it today. As Richard Ford notes: “The reason we like Chekhov so much, now at our century’s end, is because his stories from the last century’s end feel so modern to us, are so much of our time and mind.” The second half of the semester will be devoted to the short stories of Flannery O’Connor (1925-1964), an American, southern writer whose distinct style and unforgettable voice, continues to haunt and intrigue contemporary writers and readers. Besides gaining a strong knowledge of these two authors’ work, artistic intentions, and place in the literary world, we’ll explore a few writers whose work has been influenced by them. In lively discussions, we'll approach these stories as writers examining all the elements of craft, including point of view, dramatic action, the arc of the story, setting, plot, dialogue, character, language, description and theme. We'll ask questions of the stories as a way to understand them fully--to see beyond the obvious. What do we make of these sometimes microscopic and/or concentrated views of life? How do the authors involve us in these brief, often unified episodes? What truths do we glean from these fictional worlds? As we question the author’s intent and choices, we'll also reflect on the choices we make in our own fiction, as well as try our hand at writing short stories, completely unique, but inspired by Chekhov and O’Connor.
