With today's digital natives, educators face new challenges in guiding young adults to discovery of the critical thinking and enjoyment that comes from lifelong literacy not to mention simply reading simply for pleasure. For anyone seeking to hone their skills as a guide to YA reading, Latrobe and Drury give you a theoretical basis for your programming with cogent explanations of eight critical theories of literature: New Criticism/Formal Criticism; Psychological Criticism; Sociological Criticism: Relationships in Context; Historical Criticism; Gender Criticism: Opposite Sexes or Neighboring Sexes; Archetypal/Mythological Criticism; Popular Culture and Criticism; and, Reader-Response: A Unique Literary Event. "Critical Approaches to Young Adult Literature" is for librarians in school and public libraries (plus their colleagues across the curriculum) who strive for collections and programming that elicit thoughtful responses and build higher-level literacy skills across grades 6-12. In this book and CD ROM set, the authors explore all facets of creating a vibrant YA reading community such as inquiry-based learning, promoting and motivating reading, collection management, understanding multiple intelligences, accepting diverse beliefs, and acting as a change agent to name a few. Latrobe and Drury also provide basic questions designed to involve young people, activities to encourage critical responses and bibliographies of YA books with annotations. Time-saving author, title, and subject indexes round-out the work, along with appendices so you'll have reviewing media, YA awards and YA magazines at your fingertips.

Review:

"Teacher-librarians can push the thinking about what teens read by exploring the excellent ideas in this book without destroying the fun of reading widely. Learn the techniques beyond just enjoying the plot together and recommending other books to read." --Teacher Librarian, Vol. 36, Issue 5

"I have not seen a better tool for anyone - English teachers, librarians, media specialists, or literacy coaches...a valuable resource for anyone seeking to pull a lesson plan for a given piece....For anyone involved in promoting the development of literacy as a life-long practice, this is an invaluable resource." --Young Adult Library Services, Fall 2009

"This ambitious, user-friendly book provides a guide to young adult (YA) literature, an understudied field. The annotated bibliographies, as a whole, offer an admirable overview of major texts in this rapidly changing field...a valuable reference for those interested in children's literature, education, or library science. Highly recommended." --CHOICE, November 2009

"â ¦this book shows how critical theory can inform the programming and collecting practices in libraries that serve teenage readers. The author persuasively argue that librarians play an important role in helping young adults develop their critical reading skills." --Children's Literature Association Quarterly, Spring 2010, Vol. 35 No.1
