Secondary Source: Reading LGBT-Themed Literature with Young People

LGBT themed Literature

The article that I chose to focus on for this week is “Reading LGBT-Themed Literature with Young People: What’s Possible?” by Caroline T. Clark and Mollie V. Blackburn. In it, the authors discuss the various ways that LGBT texts have been incorporated into classrooms and the limitations behind these approaches.  I chose this article because I felt that we spend a lot of time talking about the books we read from an academic stance but sometimes fail to address the intended audience of these texts. While this article does not directly address Aristotle and Dante, it does provide some valuable insight into what it would be like to use such a text in a classroom and offers some advice as to what is the best way to do so.
