Serious Ideas and Middle School Students
Palumbo, Anthony; Sanacore, Joseph
Educational Forum, v77 n2 p192-198 2013
With support, young adolescents crave the challenge of learning about serious ideas through serious literature. Middle-level learners also enjoy opportunities to become immersed in activities that foster a deeper understanding of serious ideas. After discussing the value of using serious narrative literature, a rationale is provided for supporting its relevance to young adolescents. Then, pertinent materials and activities are presented for helping middle school students to be successful with serious narrative literature.
