Young Adult Literature

 

"There comes a time when the world gets quiet, and the only thing left is your own heart. So you'd better learn the sound of it. Otherwise, you will never understand what it's saying." -from Just Listen by Sarah Dessen

Students should be exposed to types of YA literature throughout their adolescent years. This type of literature can allow students to understand certain topics, and they can easily relate to the characters in these stories. It is important for teachers to incorporate this type of literature into the classroom so students can read about other teens' lives and use their stories to better understand their own struggles. Students also tend to enjoy this type of literature and are more willing to read and discuss it with their peers and teachers.
