Joseph, Rebecca J.
Voices from the Middle, v5 n2 p21-25 Apr 1998
Describes how one urban middle school teacher uses young adult literature to encourage lively class conversations, to develop students' fundamental skills, and to sharpen their abilities to connect literature with their own lives. Discusses parent/guardian permission and interdisciplinary connections, supplementary readings, literature "matchmaking," and ways books can relate to other facets of English. (SR)
