Synopsis: This engaging text helps teachers learn how to motivate teenagers to become life-long readers. It offers a comprehensive, reader-friendly introduction to young adult literature framed within a rich literary, historical, and social context. It also provides teachers with criteria for evaluating books of all genres, from poetry and nonfiction to mysteries, science fiction, and horror. Coverage of timely issues, such as pop culture and mass media, help teachers connect with students' lives outside the classroom.

From the Back Cover:

Why is Literature for Today’s Young Adults the number one book in Young Adult Literature?

 

Now in its eighth edition, Literature for Today’s Young Adults offers a comprehensive, reader-friendly introduction to young adult literature framed within a literary, historical, and social context. Renowned authors Alleen Nilsen and Kenneth Donelson provide teachers with practical criteria for evaluating books of all genres, from poetry and nonfiction to mysteries and graphic novels. The authors also include timely issues, such as pop culture and mass media, in order to help teachers connect with students’ lives beyond the classroom.

 

What is new to this edition?

  • A brand new Chapter 3, “New Technologies, New Attitudes, and New Literacies,” examines both the challenges and the excitement today’s educators face on a daily basis.
  • The 20 Young Adult authors honored with the Margaret A. Edwards Award over the past two decades each receive a one-page write-up documenting their long-lasting contributions.
  • Eight outstanding Young Adult Authors “Speak Out” on issues close to their hearts; for example, Pat Mora on “Linguistic Wealth,” Cynthia Leitich Smith on “Hosting One-Point-Six Million Visitors in Cyberspace,” and Laurie Halse Anderson on “Censorship.”
  • Names and naming is discussed as a literary technique that teachers can use to introduce students to literary criticism that goes beyond just liking and disliking a book.

What do professors say about this top-selling book?

“The Donelson and Nilsen text is a virtual compendium of essential information for educators, librarians, and those who use literature in their work with young adults.”

-Beverly Hearn, University of Tennessee at Martin

 “The censorship chapter is really interesting and well-researched.”

          -Dr. Joy Wiggins, University of Texas at Arlington
