Additional Course Details: 

Welcome to English 810S! In this course, we'll think about how to integrate teaching writing with other literacy skills like making multimedia, reading, speaking, listening, and viewing. We will focus on composing writing and multimedia works, although it is difficult (and even undesirable), to attempt to fully separate these literacy skills and practices. 

We’ll learn about how English teachers meet the needs and interests of a richly varied population of students. We will review many English teaching standards, construct and critique teaching documents, and discuss and apply the work of master literacy teachers and theorists.  

Working collaboratively, we will examine and compare philosophies of English teaching and learning, and we will develop approaches to writing and literacy instruction. We will discuss theoretical, pedagogical, and practical ideas for teaching writing in large and small groups, engage in reading and composition exercises, produce and practice instructional activities and assessments, and evaluate teaching approaches. Successfully completing this course (along with English 892) will help you recognize and affirm literacy skills and practices, and to consider how they can help your future students write, comprehend, describe, analyze, and evaluate various texts.

Special Topic Fall 2024: Teaching YA 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 digital projects.
