3 Hours Graduate Credit
This course is for teachers who want to become more familiar with current young adult literature -- the books students are reading outside of class -- and with ways to use some of those books in regular classes. Participants will read a wide array of young adult books and share information about those books, as well as teaching ideas, with colleagues. The cost is $300.
