Evaluating and Sharing

  • Teaching With pages ending every genre chapter share classroom-tested suggestions for using literature in your teaching.

 

Voices from the Field

The hottest topic in children’s literature, adolescent literature can be a complex issue. The eighth edition tackles it head on, turning to the pros to find out how to evaluate literature written for readers in grades 4 through 8, and learning how to compel this group of readers at risk of losing interest in reading.

  • New! Jack Gantos discusses the teacher’s role in keeping 4th through 8th graders interested in reading.
  • New! Nancy Farmer tells us how she works to engage readers in the middle grades.
  • New! Naomi Shihab Nye talks about the truth in poetry that engages young adolescent readers.
  • New! Joseph Bruchac tells us how we can mentor middle graders into becoming lifelong readers.

 

Through the Eyes of an Author, Through the Eyes of a Child

This two part feature begins with exclusive interviews with some of the creative geniuses that makes children’s literature fascinating, then goes on to share a child’s response to their work.

  • New! Mo Willems tells us how he generates ideas, then 5-year-old Ruby shares her feelings about Willems’s Leonardo the Terrible Monster.
  • New! Susan Guevarra tells us what inspires her art and 9-year-old Hayden responds to her artwork in Chato and the Party Animals.
  • New! Robert Burleigh talks about the poetry of writing children’s books, and 4-year-old Eva tells us her favorite things about his new picture book Clang! Clang! Beep! Beep! Listen to the City.
  • New! Joan Bauer talks about inspiration and inspiring others, and 13-year-old Julia responds to Hope Was Here.
