Teaching Young Adult Literature Today PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Teaching Young Adult Literature Today free pdf Teaching Young Adult Literature Today introduces the reader to what is current and relevant in the plethora of good books available for adolescents. More importantly, literary experts illustrate how teachers everywhere can help their students become lifelong readers by simply introducing them to great reads-smart, insightful, and engaging books that are specifically written for adolescents. Hayn, Kaplan, and their contributors address a wide range of topics: how to avoid common obstacles to using YAL- selecting quality YAL for classrooms while balancing these with curriculum requirements- engaging disenfranchised readers- pairing YAL with technology as an innovative way to teach curriculum standards across all content areas. Contributors also discuss more theoretical subjects, such as the absence of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) young adult literature in secondary classrooms- and contemporary YAL that responds to the changing expectations of digital generation readers who want to blur the boundaries between page and screen.
