(Re)presenting Women in Literature: Young Adult Literature, the Classics, and the Common Core
Participants discussed how women are (re)presented in classic high school literature (e.g. Romeo and Juliet, The Scarlet Letter) and how the inclusion of young adult books by authors such as Virginia Euwer Wolff, Jacqueline Woodson, and Laurie Halse Anderson can foster complex analysis of characters and challenge common stereotypes of women being perpetuated by several exemplar texts on the Common Core list.
