EDU 215 - Reading and Writing Youth and Youth Cultures

4 credits (Spring)
Cross-listed as: ENG 215 . The course will have a dual focus: (1) an examination and critique of the dominant narrative of adolescence enacted through educational, legal, and medical institutions with the aim of exploring how these constructions enable or constrain young people from developing as autonomous and critical adults, (2) and the use of various critical approaches to analyze texts written for young adults to uncover assumptions about what adolescence is and how young people themselves should encounter the world.

Prerequisite: EDU 101  or ENG 120 .
Note: Plus-2 option available.
Instructor: Jones
