Testimonials

I have taken lots of classes to further my teaching career, but this one was by far and away the most fun. I very much appreciated the opportunity to dig into some young adult literature on a number of levels.

---Winter 2018 Student

This course has provided me with a wealth of suggestions for great books to use in may classroom. I had no idea there were so many wonderful resources available that list excellent books for YA both fiction and non-fiction. I look forwarding to using the lists I’ve created from this online class to add to my classroom book collection, recommend to students to read, and to read for myself.This has been one of the most valuable courses I’ve taken in a long time. I would recommend this course to my peers who teach reading and language arts to young adults.

---Summer 2017 Student
