CHL 404A - Children's Poetry on Trial : You'll Be Judge, You'll Be Jury

From 1979 to 2001, the Signal Poetry Award aimed to bring attention to the lack of children's poetry on store shelves and in scholarly venues, not only by granting the award itself, but also by publishing light-hearted, yet keenly critical essays about the year's poetic crop. When this award disappeared with the journal, its mantle was taken up by The Lion and the Unicorn Award for Excellence in North American Poetry, where it still remains. This class, taught by a four-time judge, will function like a mini-session of the Lion and the Unicorn Award. The class will study the award essays from both journals to get a sense of the critical issues favored by judges, and we will read a sampling of poetry books for children similar to any given year's selection, including the good, the meh, and the pyre-worthy amongst verse novel, nature poems, picture book, young adult, light verse, and nonsense. Just as the real judges do, we will form groups to determine the winners and write collaborative essays to defend our choices and comment on the wider field of entries. Of particular importance will be consideration of the book of poetry, rather than just a poem or series of poems, as well as a focus on the fraught relationship with poetic traditions. In the end, we will, collectively and individually, come to our own conclusions about what kind of book deserves the laurels-and what kind the gallows.

CHL 429D - The Girl Reader II, 1900-1950

Examines the topos of the girl reader in terms of gender and access, focusing on the public library and the social network Goodreads. Goodreads is an increasingly valuable collection of what Lisa Nakamura calls 'vernacular literary criticism,' and we will both use Goodreads and theorize our use of it.

CNBH 661 - Applied Statistics I

This first course in a 2-part statistics sequence is a fast-paced introduction to applied statistics. Issues in survey design, observational studies and randomized experiments will also be covered. The overarching goal of the course is to provide students with the ability to identify the appropriate statistical method for their data, perform the analysis (using statistical software), and interpret the output in the context of the problem. A secondary goal of the course is to provide students with the ability to confidently critically analyze research literature.

CNBH 671 - Proposal Extension

Students who are not able to complete a dissertation proposal in the Proposal Development course may take one additional semester of Proposal Extension. The number of credits for the course will be negotiated with the HPED Program Director and will reflect the amount of work still to be completed. Registration for this Extension will result in additional fees, as it will require the student to take more than the anticipated 48 program credit hours. The student will receive a grade for the Dissertation Proposal course only after successfully defending the proposal. If the proposal is not defended during this extension, the student will be administratively withdrawn from the HPED Program

CNBH 690 - Dissertation

The final course in the dissertation sequence is CNBH 690 Dissertation Research, during which the student will complete the work and pass an oral defense of the research. No student may enter this phase until ready for data collection, meaning that a written dissertation proposal has been defended, approved, and revised, if needed, and all IRB permissions have been obtained. The credits for this course may be spread over a number of semesters, if necessary, as negotiated with the HPED Director.

If the dissertation is not defended after the completion of the allotted dissertation credits and the student has exhausted the 48-credit program of study, the student will be required to register for 1 credit per semester of Dissertation Extension for each semester of continuation. This fee is beyond the 48 credits assigned to the PhD program. Such students will register for CNBH 699-Dissertation Extension each semester until the dissertation is successfully defended and following time limits as defined in the HPED Handbook.
