Teaching Young Adult Literature

Thanks to the success of franchises such as The Hunger Games and Twilight, young adult literature has reached a new level of prominence and popularity. Teens and adults alike are drawn to the genre's coming-of-age themes, fast pacing, and vivid emotional portrayals. The essays in this volume suggest ways high school and college instructors can incorporate YA texts into courses in literature, education, library science, and general education.

The first group of essays explores key issues in YA literature, situates works in cultural contexts, and addresses questions of text selection and censorship. The second section discusses a range of genres within YA literature, including both realistic and speculative fiction as well as verse narratives, comics, and film. The final section offers ideas for assignments, including interdisciplinary and digital projects, in a variety of courses.

Reviews

"Although I've been teaching young adult literature for over twenty years, I have found in this volume many new and useful suggestions that I would love to incorporate in my classes." —Alice L. Trupe, Bridgewater College

"I am eager to use this volume. It works well not only as a teaching guide but also as a book about the field and its broader pedagogical and cultural dimensions." —Kenneth Kidd, University of Florida
