From Hinton to Hamlet free pdf A revised and expanded guide on how to use young adult literature in the classroom to make classic literature more accessible for teenagers Many teachers and librarians are frustrated by teenagers' lack of interest in reading and their inability to appreciate classic literature. For these educators, young adult literature is the answer to this dilemma. Quality young adult literature, written specifically for a teenage audience, helps students relate and react to characters, plot, setting, and themes that reflect issues in their own lives. These novels then build a bridge to the adult classics that have similar plots and themes. Herz and Gallo present theories and techniques for using young adult literature in the classroom by presenting twelve "Connections" between a classic work such as Great Expectations by Charles Dickens and novels such as Ruby in the Smoke by Philip Pullman and The True Confessions of Charioite Doyle by Avi. They also present other approaches such as archetypes, the author paper, and young adult literature across the disciplines. Extensive bibliographies of young adult literature, reference resources, author web sites, and professional Journals will help any educator incorporate young adult literature into their students' lives with ease. The twelve "Connections" presented here are prepared for busy teachers to adapt into the classroom with a minimum of time and effort. The following classic works are covered: The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn- The Grapes of Wrath- Great Expectations- The Great Gatsby- Hamlet- Jullus Caesar- Lord of the Files- The Odyssey- Of Mice and Men- Romeo and Juliet- The Scarlol Letter- To Kill a Mockingbird. Presents practical examples for busy teachers of 12 frequently-taught classics, and appropriate young adult novels. Provides an extensive list of literature themes and the novels in which they occur. Provides specific novels of use in other disciplines like art and science
