Why Teach YA? - There’s Nothing I Want More than for Kids to Love What We’re Doing
Feb 19th, 2020 by Unabridged
In this episode, we focus on classroom teachers and talk directly about how and why we incorporated Young Adult literature into our classrooms. We talk about series we saw our students loving like Suzanne Collins's The Hunger Games, Stephanie Meyer's Twilight, and Veronica Roth's Divergent, and we talk about seeing our students fall in love with books. From classics like S.E. Hinton's The Outsiders to A.S. King's Everybody Sees the Ants, we talk about using YA lit in our classes and also the role we think it can play more generally within the classroom setting.
