9780415875158: Teaching Literature to Adolescents

Designed to introduce prospective English teachers to current methods of teaching literature in middle and high school classrooms, this popular textbook explores a variety of innovative approaches that incorporate reading, writing, drama, talk, and media production. Each chapter is organized around specific questions that English educators often hear in working with preservice teachers. The text engages readers in considering the dilemmas and issues facing literature teachers through inquiry-based responses to authentic case narratives. A Companion Website, http://teachingliterature.pbworks.com, provides resources and enrichment activities, inviting teachers to consider important issues in the context of their own current or future classrooms.

New in the second edition:

  • more attention to the use of digital texts from use of online literature to digital storytelling to uses of online discussion and writing tools incorporated throughout
  • new chapter on teaching young adult literature
  • new chapter on teaching reading strategies essential to interpreting literature
  • more references to examples of teaching multicultural literature.

Review:

"Teaching Literature to Adolescents provides chapter after chapter to help preservice English teachers prepare themselves to be more effective in the classroom...[It] explains ways to get students fully engaged in the literature classroom--interpreting, discussing, and writing about literature...[The] authors may say it's for preservice English teachers, but don't kid yourself--new and veteran teachers alike can benefit from the text and its related website."--Journal of Adolescent & Adult Literacy, October 2007

"This book would be extremely useful for secondary English teachers in the field, because it is based on a variety of critical lenses, not just the usual reader-response approach. An additional benefit is that the infusion of multicultural literature with the largely white literature canon fosters a critical analysis of how a writer reveals race, class, and gender in literature. Recommended. General readers, upper-division undergraduates through practitioners."--CHOICE
