English professor honored by national adolescent literature group

Christopher E. Crowe, professor of English education at Brigham Young University, has been honored as the 2010 recipient of the Ted Hipple Service Award from the Assembly on Literature for Adolescents.

The award is given to the individual who has “offered significant contributions to the ALAN organization.” Crowe participated as the president of ALAN from 2001 to 2002.

Crowe has been teaching at BYU since 1993. He teaches courses in literature for adolescents, methods of teaching secondary English, writing for children and teenagers and creative writing. Previous to coming to Provo, he taught at BYU-Hawaii, Himeji (Japan) Dokkyo University and at a local high school for 10 years.

He received his bachelor’s degree from BYU, initially arriving on a football scholarship from 1972 to 1975. He went on to receive two degrees from Arizona State University.

Crowe has written many novels, short stories, pieces of fiction and articles. He has been featured in the Provo Children’s Book Festival, the New Era and in the book, “Sunshine for the Latter-day Saint Teenager’s Soul.”

The award is named in honor of Ted Hipple, the first and longtime ALAN executive secretary who passed away Nov. 25, 2004. Hipple shaped ALAN through decades of service and support. He was a professor of education at the University of Tennessee, where he was a former chair of the Department of Curriculum and Instruction.
