Integrating Young Adult Literature through the Common Core Standards provides a compelling template for teachers that uses young adult literature and inquiry learning to meet students' needs and the demands of the common core standards. The first part of the book addresses the widely adopted common core state standards by examining closely the standards' model of text complexity and demonstrating how young adult literature can fill the requirements of this model. The second part provides theoretical discussions and analysis of the standards as well as concrete applications of young adult literature within the classroom in order to give school professionals a comprehensive understanding of how young adult literature and the standards can work together. The book empowers schools and teachers to make intelligent, informed decisions about texts and instructional practices that benefit their students. Finally, the authors explore a powerful teaching approach that integrates current understandings about learning, young adult literature, and the common core standards in a way that will facilitate greater learning and understanding in English classrooms.

Product Description


"This volume is a must-have for any professional development and school media collection at the high school level, and a strongly suggested addition for other levels due to the lack of materials currently available on integrating literature through the common core standards at any or all levels." - ARBA "Scholarly in tone, this well-organized professional text is readable, interesting, and practical. Reading specialists will find it helpful for introducing changes to the standard format and teacher training institutions might consider it for possible curricula." - VOYA

This book has every. single. detail. needed to connect the library skills with curriculum skills...almost to tedious to want to read, but very informative and a go to for questions that can be answered in meticulous detail. Actually, when I think about it, an excellent reference book to have on hand.
5.0 out of 5 stars Integrating Young Adult Literature Through the Common Core Standards 14 Feb 2014
By Linda Kay Davis - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Integrating Young Adult Literature Through the Common Core Standards is an excellent choice for a class required for English majors seeking licenses to teach E/LA in grades 7-12. This textbook clearly defines and scaffolds instruction related to text complexity and close reading with attention to how these elements relate to CCSS while many other textbooks only mention CCSS or do not explain to teacher candidates (and teachers, as well) how they can use YA literature to address CCSS. I will select this text again for next semester's YA class.
