Are you using young adult literature (YAL) with your students? Which authors and titles do kids connect with most frequently in your classroom? Which books appeal most to boys? to girls? to all students? How have you structured your classroom so that students have time to read and discuss YAL? How does YAL connect to other parts of your curriculum -- to classic literature, writing, speaking, listening, performance, projects, exam preparation?
What questions do you have for other teachers about YAL? What suggestions would you give to someone just beginning to include YAL in their classroom? What are the essential titles for your grade/age level students?
