Writing Rationales for Using Young Adult Literature in the Classroom.
Sacco, Margaret T.
Noting that young adult literature is especially vulnerable to censorship, this guide maintains that every teacher should have a written rationale for every book that is required reading in the classroom. It presents 19 guidelines for writing a theoretical rationale for any book used in the classroom. Twenty references and a list of where to get help if a censorship problem occurs are attached. (SR)
