9780131118416: Young Adult Literature: Exploration, Evaluation, and Appreciation

Young Adult Literature: Exploration, Evaluation, and Appreciation is an exciting new book developed to identify for teachers how to better connect adolescents with good literature. Comprehensive enough to ensure that teachers understand today’s adolescents and the literature that will engage them, yet slim enough to ensure readers have the opportunity to read the books themselves, this book will help teachers provide a rich educational experience for adolescents throughout the middle and secondary curriculum while nourishing their love of reading. This book addresses adolescent culture and the types of literature that engage adolescents, including horror, graphic novels, comic books, and many forms of media, more thoroughly and insightfully than any other on the market. Middle and Secondary Inservice Teachers and Reading Specialists.

From the Back Cover:

Connect with your adolescent students–while helping them connect with great literature.

 

Contemporary and practical, the second edition of Young Adult Literature: Exploration, Evaluation, and Appreciation remains comprehensive enough to ensure that teachers understand today’s adolescents and the literature that engages them, while still remaining brief enough to give teachers the opportunity to read the books discussed.

 

With a continued focus on understanding the world of today’s students, this text includes the most current readings that will help teachers provide a rich educational experience for adolescents throughout the middle and secondary curriculum. Young Adult Literature covers a number of diverse genres — such as horror, humor, mystery, science fiction, fantasy, graphic novels and comic books — with the simple goal of helping teachers nourish and develop their students’ love of reading, whatever their interests may be. This is not an encyclopedic reference book of the past, but rather a modern resource for teachers who want to connect with each one of their students through literature.

 

The new second edition includes…

 

  • New “Using Multiple Readings” features that appear throughout the text and that are designed for teachers and library media specialists to connect with students.
  • Demonstrations of the use of multiple critical viewpoints with selected young adult literature that help teachers best discuss the literature with students.
  • A new section on using picture books with young adults that assists teachers in utilizing all genres to connect with all levels of young adult readers.
  • Updated “Suggested Readings” sections in each chapter that help teachers continue learning about young adult literature beyond the text itself.
  • Updated Page to Screen features to motivate readers and class discussions comparing books now available as movies.
  • A completely revised and improved chapter on comics and graphic novels that helps instructors understand and value the varied interests of today’s young readers.
