Description:

KEY BENEFIT: This fresh approach to young adult literature shows teachers how to connect with their adolescent students and connect their students with good literature. Comprehensive enough to ensure that teachers understand todayrsquo;s adolescents and the literature that will engage them, yet slim enough to ensure readers have the opportunity to read the books themselves, this book helps teachers provide a rich educational experience for adolescents throughout the middle and secondary curriculum while nourishing their love of reading. Thoroughly updated, the text continues to address adolescent culture and the types of literature that engage adolescents, including horror, graphic novels, Japanesemangacomic books, and many forms of media, more thoroughly and insightfully than any other on the market. Middle and Secondary In-service Teachers and Reading Specialists.
