Post your reading journal about Moth stories here
The second post for our online/asynchronous class is about the listening assigned for Wednesday, 2 February 2022. You can access all of the Moth Story Hour stories from our syllabus on our class website.
For this reading journal, please post no more than 300 words (because it is an online post). As you post, please consider not just the three stories I asked you to listen to from The Moth but think about the two stories from Monday's Snow Day cancellation. While "7th Grade" and "The Secret Letter" are specifically written for and, in the case of "Letter" written by, Young Adults, the other pieces are written for adult readers/audiences.And yet all of them work or could work as young adult.
For this post, please respond to this prompt using all five of the readings/listenings from this week: What makes something "young" and "adult"? Is there a spectrum? If so, where to the stories we looked at this week fall? As you answer, consider the characteristics of YA that we talked about in class last week from the readings for Wednesday's class.
NOTE: As this is an asynchronous assignment, you need to have this and all of the other posts from this week completed by class time on Monday, 7 February 2022.
