INDEX OF SUBJECTS
A wonderful exploration of the vital ways adolescent literature can open hearts and truly engage minds with the historical realities of our world. This is an important addition to every teacher’s professional library!
— Laurie Halse Anderson, New York Times bestselling author, “Speak”, “Twisted”,“Wintergirls,” and the “Seeds of America Trilogy”
Adolescent Literature as a Complement to the Content Areas speaks to what education could be when allowed to follow its natural course. Using YA literature brings imagination into the arenas of social studies and the humanities, and I am in good company with Albert Einstein who told us over and over that true brilliance cannot be achieved without robust imagination.
— Chris Crutcher, author of several American Library Association (ALA) Best Books for Young Adults, including five novels that appeared on ALA’s list of the 100 Best Books for Teens of the 21st Century
This volume contains highly practical methods that combine meaningful social studies material and relevance to literacy standards. The range of topics included is imaginative and would find good use in a number of different social studies courses.
— Stephen J. Thornton, professor of Social Science Education, University of South Florida; author of the award-winning “Teaching Social Studies That Matters: Curriculum for Active Learning”
