DSU West River Teacher Center: Sports in Adolescent Literature (Online)

June 1

$200

Librarians, teachers of all grades and subjects, and coaches of any sport are invited to join this online book club to discuss four recent works of adolescent literature. Diverse American teens are the athletic main characters: a boy who plays basketball, a girl who boxes, a boy who plays football, and a girl who runs. Their athletic ability gives them hope to escape bigotry, abuse, poverty, or trauma. Participants in this course will consider what the books offer their intended audience. At the same time, we will enjoy being readers ourselves and interacting in our own literacy community.
