Review “…this is a perfect text for college students. Young adults enjoy
texts that are organized, concise, and relevant. This text lives up to that
obligation and also, does so much more. The authors provide a comprehensive
and engaging approach to the study of young adult literature — both fiction
and non-fiction — and beckon their readers to learn so much through its many
ancillary and critical thinking questions and activities. This is the perfect
text for college students and teachers eager to learn about good books for
teens and how best to motivate life-long readers.” — Jeffrey Stuart Kaplan,
University of Central Florida “The authors spend just the right amount of time
explaining the material and providing examples. Novice and experienced
individuals who want to know more about young adult literature will find this
text a rich resource for becoming more knowledgeable about a field of study
that is only now coming into its own. And classroom teachers will find this
text an excellent place to find ideas, activities, and strategies for
motivating young people to become life-long readers.” — Jeffrey Stuart
Kaplan, University of Central Florida “Young Adult Literature is a
comprehensive text that focuses of various genres in a clear and no-fuss
format.” — Andrea Neptune, Sierra College “This text is a nice resource for
anyone teaching Young Adult literature. The internet resources and Suggested
Readings are excellent. The examples are current and up-to-date.” — Patricia
L. Jones, University of South Florida Read more From the Inside Flap Connect
with adolescent students—and help them connect with good literature! This
engaging, informative, and balanced look at the world of young adult
literature shows teachers how. What will engage today’s adolescents? And what
will help them connect with high quality and valued titles in every genre,
including the literature of graphic novels and comic books, as well as the
horror and humor titles that especially captivate today’s young readers? These
are the issues this text explores as it provides teachers with a number of
practical suggestions and strategies, looks at diversity and multicultural
literature, approaches the sensitivities of censorship, explores the Internet
and film adaptations of young literature, demonstrates how to collaborate with
other professionals; and much more. Brief enough to give readers the
opportunity to read the books themselves, yet comprehensive enough to ensure
that teachers truly understand adolescents, their literature, and how to
connect the two, this book provides what’s needed to ensure a rich educational
experience for adolescents, while nourishing their love of reading. Features
in this new edition include: Updates to the widely popular features from the
Second Edition Reorganized content for a more user-friendly approach Updated
lists of young adult literature New information and features about the Common
Core Standards for the English Language Arts New literature titles that
reflect our increasingly multicultural society and contemporary issues, such
as bullying Aids for encouraging critical thinking Resources for teaching
English Language Learners New Suggested Readings Read more See all Editorial
