Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This is a valuable addition to any school library or professional development library in a K-8 setting." - ARBAonline

"Fictional books in middle-school curricula frequently include works that do not reflect students' daily lives. This is especially true for racial minority students. In older works, people of color are often represented in circumstances that leave young readers unable to find a link to their own identities in the work. Carianne Bernadowski here offers a teaching guide using Coretta Scott King Award-winning books as the centerpiece of a middle school reading curriculum. The book provides background information for each title, course and study suggestions, and tools for assessing the skills and comprehension of the students. It is hoped, by presenting literature that more closely relates to their own lives, students will find greater comfort and reward by reading more literature." - Reference & Research Book News

"This book would be a great professional resource, and a must have for those educators that teach adolescents. Highly recommended." - Library Media Connection

"… Educators who want to introduce their students to stories with African American characters will find this a highly useful resource." - Catholic Library World

Bernadowski has hit the mark with this book! Teaching Literacy Skills to Adolescents: Using Coretta Scott King Award Winners is a great find for librarians and teachers of tweens and teenagers. She makes it simple to base lessons on award-winning books written by authors who are African American. I love that it is standards based and the lessons/activity sheets can be used in a classroom immediately. Teachers have such little planning time; it is great to have instant creative lesson plans!
