Tweens and Teens Course Schedule Spring 2011 http://www.americanteenthemovie.com/ (View the trailer) There are readings or viewings as well as homework due for each class. They are listed on the date they are due. The purpose of the homework is to prove to me that you have done the work and are prepared for class. Homeworks should be from a paragraph to a page, printed and turned in at the end of each class. Be sure to reference the assignment to show me that you have read or watched it carefully. Homework is graded with a check, check plus or check minus. Your homeworks account for half of your class participation points. All readings are posted on Blackboard or links them them are provided. Most of the viewings are available for free on the Internet, but all of them are on reserve in the media room in Paley Library.

You are strongly advised to print the articles on Blackboard, mark them up with your notes and underlining’s, and bring them to class so you can refer to them directly. Since there is no textbook for this class, you can create your own by printing the articles and compiling them in a notebook. In that way, you will have them all when you need to read them over to refer to them in your midterm assignment and in your final paper. Week 1: The Teenage Years: Why do they matter? Getting acquainted Questions: How we know who we are? How have “teenagers” evolved? How do teens relate to adult society? Class 1 (1/18)): What and how much do we need to know ? Introductions to each other and the course What do you want to learn about adolescence? Class 2 (1/20): Teenagers in context Read for today: Thomas Hine, “The Teenage Mystique” from The Rise and Fall of the American Teenager (posted under Readings) HOMEWORK for today: How does Hine say adults view teenagers and why? (Homework should be printed out and turned in at the end of class.) In class: (or feel free to listen on your own): Talk of the Nation, a public radio show on Teen Years: http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=1065399 Key course questions to be introduced in class The following three questions will guide the inquiry process throughout the semester. They will come up again and again. In their presentations and research projects, students will need to address these questions and come to some conclusions about how to answer them. 1. Does adolescence inevitably precipitate an identity crisis through which all young people in all cultures must successfully pass in order to lead productive adult lives? What is the nature of that crisis and how does it get resolved? 2. Do an individual’s gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, race, class, religion, and region affect the character of their adolescent experience, or do all people have to accomplish the same developmental tasks in the same way no matter who they are?

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
