Young Adult Literature is an in-depth literature survey that also models how to teach literature and reading to middle school and high school students. Cole's textbook is divided into four parts. Part One familiarizes teacher candidates with the reading process of teens, discusses teen attitudes toward reading, and their interests and reading abilities. Part Two discusses genre and theme, surveys young adult literature through genre and theme categories, and examines young adult literature in terms of style and structure. Part Three continues to introduce high-quality selections but uses these selections to illustrate methods for teaching reading to all learners - including writing skills. Part Four provides the teacher candidate with professional development ideas and additional resources in the field of young adult literature and describes ways the literature can be used beyond the classroom.
