What Every Adolescent Literature Course Should, But Doesn't Teach.
Kenney, Donald J.
Adolescent literature courses in teacher preparation programs should teach novice English teachers how to excite students about reading and how to deal with a constantly changing body of literature. Surveys show that most adolescent literature classes in teacher education programs largely ignore four areas that should be emphasized to better prepare English teachers for these tasks. The first area includes the use of motivational and promotional techniques, such as book talks, storytelling, oral reading, and attractive handouts. The second area is familiarizing prospective teachers with the extensive literature review sources and selections aids available. The third area is the use of non-book materials such as filmstrips, records, cassettes, and videos. The last area is how to teach young adult novels using specific models as guidelines. (AEA)
