Veritas: An Adolescent Novel In A Biblical Worldview Context, Tessanna H. Curtis Apr 2013

Veritas: An Adolescent Novel In A Biblical Worldview Context, Tessanna H. Curtis

Senior Honors Theses

The secular world of literature is saturated with books sending adolescents a host of mixed signals. Contemporary young readers would benefit from literature that in some way reflects biblical truth and conveys a message that glorifies God. Such notions led to the writing of a young adult fantasy novel that introduces themes and plots that do not conflict with a Christian worldview. The protagonist does not simply react to situations around her, but is driven by specific desires that are not so easily obtained. Unlike many modern adolescent fantasies, the world is fully developed and populated by a variety of ...

The ‘Perks’ Of Controversial Texts In Curricula: The Benefit Of Young Adult Literature On Adolescents In The Classroom, Carly Hurst Jan 2013

The ‘Perks’ Of Controversial Texts In Curricula: The Benefit Of Young Adult Literature On Adolescents In The Classroom, Carly Hurst

3690: A Journal of First-Year Student Research Writing

Overview: Have you ever heard a song on the radio with a terrible beat or a screechy singer but had eloquent lyrics? Like a diamond in the rough, the true beauty is buried underneath layers of dirt. This premise can be seen in The Perks of Being a Wallflower, a young adult novel surrounded by controversy. Due to its somewhat risqué themes, the book is undoubtedly ribald, thus causing quite a flurry by parents about its use in curricula. However, this novel should not be censored because it not only integrates modern young adult literature into classrooms, relating better with ...
