Using Young Adult Literature to Provide Case Studies for Discussion of Bullying: An Analysis of the 2014 Pura Belpré Award Winner
Cummins, Amy
Texas Journal of Literacy Education, v2 n1 p2-12 2014
Analyzing Meg Medina's young adult novel "Yaqui Delgado Wants to Kick Your Ass" (2013) through the lens of multidisciplinary research on school bullying provides a case study in using young adult literature (YAL) to stimulate high school discussions about bullying. Strategies for using anti-bullying YAL and recommendations of additional resources by and about Latinas/os are provided. Medina's novel, which earned the 2014 Pura Belpré Award recognizing excellence in the portrayal of the Latina/o experience, challenges teen hesitation to report bullying and demonstrates the need for peer and adult intervention in bullying.
