Hey All! I was playing around on NCTE's web site (I so wish I was going to this year's convention in Las Vegas!) and I came across this great article about young adult literature called "YA Literature—Where Teens Find Themselves" by Lorna Collier. It's a great article. She addresses what young adult literature actually is, how it's defined, how it can be used in the classroom and the challenges of it (my favorite part, personally). Check it out.
Stay well. I hope everyone on the East Coast is weathering the aftermath of the hurricane I am okay in Jersey but super sad over all of the damage.
