9780133066791: Young Adult Literature: Exploration, Evaluation, and Appreciation

Pre- and in-service teachers get what they need to connect with adolescent students—and to help them connect with good literature—in this engaging, balanced look at the world of young adult literature. Here readers get foundational knowledge combined with a look at the pathways leading to the literature itself, to begin to open the door to exploring young adult literature. 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, Young Adult Literature by Bucher and Hinton provides what’s needed to ensure a rich educational experience for adolescents, while nourishing their love of reading.

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

From the Back Cover:

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.
