This class was tough.
While it is important that the aspiring educator learn the usefulness of adolescent literature, I feel that this course sets the student up for failure. The construction of the syllabus places a great deal of emphasis on the chapter notes and presentations, to the point that the midterm and final exams are almost null.
The book presentations were intense, but they taught me the necessity of thorough planning and knowledge of the content.

Advice for students:
Do not go in blind. Read-up on the latest adolescent fiction, and be sure not to procrastinate with class work. This course will require a great deal more work than other undergraduate courses.
