Pre- and in-service teachers get what they need to connect with adolescent students—and to help them connect with good literature—in this engaging, balanced look at the world of young adult literature. Here readers get foundational knowledge combined with a look at the pathways leading to the literature itself, to begin to open the door to exploring young adult literature. Brief enough to give readers the opportunity to read the books themselves, yet comprehensive enough to ensure that teachers truly understand adolescents, their literature, and how to connect the two, Young Adult Literature by Bucher and Hinton provides what’s needed to ensure a rich educational experience for adolescents, while nourishing their love of reading.

From the Back Cover:

Connect with adolescent students—and help them connect with good literature!  This engaging, informative, and balanced look at the world of young adult literature shows teachers how.

 

What will engage today’s adolescents? And what will help them connect with high quality and valued titles in every genre, including the literature of graphic novels and comic books, as well as the horror and humor titles that especially captivate today’s young readers? These are the issues this text explores as it provides teachers with a number of practical suggestions and strategies, looks at diversity and multicultural literature, approaches the sensitivities of censorship, explores the Internet and film adaptations of young literature, demonstrates how to collaborate with other professionals; and much more.

 

Brief enough to give readers the opportunity to read the books themselves, yet comprehensive enough to ensure that teachers truly understand adolescents, their literature, and how to connect the two, this book provides what’s needed to ensure a rich educational experience for adolescents, while nourishing their love of reading.
