dc.description.abstractUsing excerpts from young adult literature (YAL), secondary students will engage in pre-, during-, and after-reading activities to analyze sites in their school typically occupied by student athletes, coaches, and spectators (e.g., locker rooms, training facilities, pep assemblies, and competition venues) and critique language that permeates this sites. At the lesson's conclusion, students will create and distribute a print or non-print text that conveys a message in support of improving the culture of school sports. This lesson is intended for inclusion in a unit on language and power and features excerpts from three focal texts with lesbian, gay, and transgender protagonists: The Miseducation of Cameron Post (2012) by emily m. danforth, Out of the Pocket (2008) by Bill Konigsberg, and Parrotfish (2007) by Ellen Wittlinger.
