What's the Big Idea? Integrating Young Adult Literature in the Middle School.
George, Marshall A.
English Journal, v90 n3 p74-81 Jan 2001
Relates stories of three middle and high school teachers to describe how teachers can effectively integrate young adult literature into the curriculum. Notes a variety of strategies, including the particularly effective use of multiple genre thematic units, where a variety of texts are linked by some common theme, allowing students to use literature as a means of exploring "big ideas."
