Journal of Children's Literature, v26 n1 p32-43 Spr 2000
Investigates teacher characters in four young adult novels for their strategies of teaching and their effectiveness in engaging students in their learning. Indicates that when students learn to behave and work according to only the teacher's expectations, they find little reason to engage and challenge themselves. Concludes that students must feel supported when challenged in order to transform their realities. (SG)
