Abstract

The purpose of this curriculum development project is to create and describe a course designed to help new high school students gain a deeper understanding of their own perspective by recognizing their personality traits, learning styles, and inter-personal nuances while reading coming-of-age stories in an independent novel project. By reading novels with characters facing adversity and personal growth opportunities, and connecting those concepts to their own experiences and self-knowledge, students will find this course relevant to their personal growth as a student and young adult. This will promote affect and encourage students to take ownership of their education.
