Elizabeth Kent’S New Tales Of Botanical Friendship, Leila Walker 2020 CUNY Queens College

Elizabeth Kent’S New Tales Of Botanical Friendship, Leila Walker

Publications and Research

Elizabeth Kent has been considered a rather minor figure in the Leigh Hunt circle. However, this examination of her previously unknown children’s tales illuminates how Kent’s generic crossings establish a common emphasis on observation in the realms of botany, pedagogy, and poetry while suggesting that what happens beyond the observable world might be equally generative. Taken as a whole, Kent’s work constitutes a previously unacknowledged challenge to the Cockney School’s almost fetishistic attachment to the social. The identification of New Tales brings into focus Kent’s efforts to systematize friendship through her writing and clarifies her ...


Adolescence: Fact Or Fiction?, Nicole Friedberg 2020 University of Pittsburgh

Adolescence: Fact Or Fiction?, Nicole Friedberg

The Macksey Journal

Adolescence is a relatively new concept that has not been re-evaluated since its beginnings. In order to understand how society’s expectations of those in that life stage has changed, both fictional and non-fictional media were referenced, mainly in the form of novels, memoirs, and TV shows/movies. As time has progressed, expectations of adolescents have risen to a point which nearly eradicates the idea of what that stage of life is meant to be. By having such high expectations of adolescents, we have forced them into a glorified version of adulthood which asks a great deal of them while ...

Final Master's Portfolio, Lisa Berlekamp 2020 Bowling Green State University

Final Master's Portfolio, Lisa Berlekamp

Master of Arts in English Plan II Graduate Projects

This portfolio is comprised of four papers which demonstrate my growth in English and my ability to use this growth to improve my knowledge and skills as an educator. The time spent researching writing, the teaching of writing, and diverse literature highlights my focus during the program. My work can hopefully be used by other educators who strive to adapt and create their English curriculum.


Projects To Enhance And Innovate Learning In The High School English Classroom: A Final Master’S Portfolio, Kayla Welch 2020 Bowling Green State University

Projects To Enhance And Innovate Learning In The High School English Classroom: A Final Master’S Portfolio, Kayla Welch

Master of Arts in English Plan II Graduate Projects

My purpose for this portfolio is for each reader to look at teaching in a new and innovative way that will guide students and educators. I have resources in each project that will push ideas for new projects or encourage readers to try a new writing mode or novel that they have never tried before. I hope my students are engaged in my variety of lessons and research and feel challenged to push themselves in their own research and writing. I encourage the reader to use the following projects to create a positive writing and reading environment in the classroom.


Enriching Creative Communities Through Young Adult (Ya) Literature: A Content Analysis Of Zines From Philippine High School For The Arts, Reya Mari Soriaga Veloso 2020 University of the Philippines Los Baños, Philippines

Enriching Creative Communities Through Young Adult (Ya) Literature: A Content Analysis Of Zines From Philippine High School For The Arts, Reya Mari Soriaga Veloso

ASEAN Journal of Community Engagement

Prompted by the recent boom of zine-making and the active participation of youth in the local art scene, this paper is focused on determining the role of zines in the lives, culture of creation, and community engagement of young adults (YAs) and creating a typology based on the coming-of-age themes presented in fiction and nonfiction zines created by students at Philippine High School for the Arts (PHSA). To do so, the researcher collected zines from various events and expos, chose zines written by YAs (PHSA students in particular), conducted focus-group and individual interviews among the authors, and performed content analysis ...


Phone Down Magic On (An Augmented Reality Performance/Reading), Laura Zaylea 2020 Temple University

Phone Down Magic On (An Augmented Reality Performance/Reading), Laura Zaylea

Electronic Literature Organization Conference 2020

Phone Down Magic On is designed as a chapter book for children, grades 3-5, and each chapter begins with augmented reality content. The story follows three young friends who text each other before bed. By holding a phone above the physical chapter book, readers see the characters’ texting session as if it were happening on their own phones… and when a parent says to put the phone down, the texting stops and the “magic” begins. The screen interface dissolves into a dream scene, and clues to a mystery are presented in floating text presented within animated sequences supported by sound ...

Sacrifice, Magic, And Age: The Young Adult’S Burden (A Study Of Ya Fantasy), Angelamarie Malkoun

The Macksey Journal

“Young adult,” coined in the 1960s by the Young Adult Library Services Association, holds immense meaning though it has had a much shorter lifetime than “child” and “adult.” The young adult (“adolescent” or “teenager”) continues to as a grey area between the duality of child and adult, an area that tends to be disregarded due to stereotypes and clichés. In working extensively on Fantasy/Young Adult Fantasy literature from the 19th century to the present, my research has focused on the evolution of the adolescent/adolescence and how magic and temptation are used to argue the human inability to ...
