Welcome to English 534: Spring 2023

Welcome to English 534: Spring 2023

Hello nice people!

decorativeI am excited to work with you this semester in 534! Congratulations on being so close to finishing the BA in English or English Education. As you most likely know, you should be in graduating senior status (you should be graduating this semester, Spring 2023, or next semester, Fall 2023) and you should have taken or currently be enrolled in ENGL 335, ENGL 375, and ENGL 441. If these things are not true, email me (kjaxon@csuchico.edu) and Dr. Kittle (pkittle@csuchico.edu) asap. We’ll sort things out. 

Before Monday’s class (4:00-5:15), please take a look at all the things on our site if you have a chance: syllabus, assignments, etc. You have some choice in your book selections for young adult novels and it would be great if you click around the links (on the Syllabus page) and do some research on the YA books before our first class; this will help with more informed decisions. You are also welcome to just let me pick for you and #choosethedanger. I already have class sets of these books, so nothing for you to buy. 😉 

I’m excited that Lauren Wassam will be joining us as a TA in the course; Lauren took 534 last spring and is just super smart and awesome to work with. 

Finally, hoping you’ll take me up on adding a photo(s) to a shared slide deck (link here) so we can learn about our community. We’ll use this to support our introductions. 

In a nutshell:

  • Check out this website: syllabus, assignments, YA book options
  • Add photo(s) to our shared slide deck

Feel free to email me with questions. I look forward to meeting new to me people and seeing others again! 

Kim (Dr. Jaxon)
