Book Description
Like many teachers of grades 6–10, you may be asking "Should I use young adult literature in my classroom? And how?" This new volume answers both questions by explaining how YA literature promotes learning across cultures, genres, disciplines, and grade levels, and by giving practical lessons and teaching tips. The chapters are divided into three sections—Responding to Reading, Exploring Genres, and Studying Authors—and cover a wide range of topics that include book reviews, poetry, picture books, and author studies. Interspersed throughout the chapters are classroom-tested "Teacher Ideas" from educators invited by the authors to contribute to this volume. The book concludes with an appendix that highlights websites related to YA literature.
Not only does this book deliver new ways of teaching and viewing YA literature, but it also identifies reading materials and teaching strategies that will retain students as readers as they grow into adolescence. Instead of viewing reading as "uncool," your students can become active, engaged readers when you make young adult literature a part of your curriculum.
