Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Lucy Schall
Packed with suggestions and resources for every teacher, this curriculum treasure chest illustrates how to integrate young adult literature so that students learn content, improve literacy, and enjoy reading—for life. The first two chapters justify emotionally accessible texts as central teaching tools and present an overview of teaching methods. The remaining chapters target genres: informational; fiction; biography, autobiography, and memoir; poetry; and how-to and hands-on. The first two parts of each genre chapter present a rationale, specific lesson plans, and "Walk-Throughs" that illustrate hands-on implementation. Kane's creative suggestions for discussion, study, research, and cooperative learning range from double-entry journals and graphic organizers to scrapbooking. The third section focuses on outstanding authors, such as James Cross Giblin, Walter Dean Myers, Naomi Shihab Nye, and Robert Sabuda. It also includes a full bibliography of the author's works and Web sites. Part four annotates books, tagged for age level, with booktalks targeted primarily to teachers and organized by content areas: Art; English/Language Arts; Languages and Cultures; Math and Technology; Music; Physical Education, Health, and Wellness; Science; Social Studies/History. Character booktalks, sprinkled through the bibliography, hold appeal for a student audience. Kane emphasizes that cross-curriculum reading encourages lifelong education and that motivating content and process support both curiosity and high test scores. Every school, library, and teacher-training program should have at least one copy, and a young adult program planner or group leader will find it a fantastic andfascinating resource.
