This course focuses on evaluating, selecting, integrating, and understanding adolescent literature in 6th-12th grade classrooms. Participants investigate gender, language, and individual preferences in adolescent literature. Participants analyze various techniques and formats for teaching diverse learners using an array of culturally responsive, age-appropriate, classic, contemporary, and award-winning literature. Participants examine the use of text sets, choice books, technology links, tradebooks, audio books, author studies, performance assessments, and book-to-film features to incorporate across the curriculum.
