For our first discussion board of the semester, nothing stressful, think about your reading experiences as a young adult reader. You might still think of yourself as a young adult reader (as we will talk about later n the semester--lots of fully adult readers read YA; it's a trend in publishing). In any case, think about the books you read that would be called YA, think about what they meant to you, think about how they shaped you as a reader, a student, a writer, a thinker, a human.
Post: your 200-300 word YA reading story.
Respond: to at least one classmate. Try not to write the perfunctory "I totally agree". I seriously hate that. Try to connect with your classmates where you can; have conversations with each other about what strikes you as unique about your colleagues' stories. Try to really read and respond with heart and generosity to each other. Maybe even enjoy it.
