YA (Young Adult) Language Arts eBooks
Currently, the first mode of delivery for YA language arts is through Social Media. Despite this, there are a number of ways to find YA literature. One resource you might want to consider is Goodreads, a social networking website for readers. Another option is NoveList, a resource that matches readers to the right book. To access NoveList, you must have a virtual library card from the SLCL.
YA fiction is a growing segment of literature
YA (young adult) fiction is becoming increasingly popular as a growing segment of literature in the language and literacy arts. This category includes books aimed at young adults, and many of these titles appeal to both adult readers and children alike. The books can be about a range of topics, from coming of age stories to novels about drugs, gangs, and contemporary themes. Despite their youth-orientated focus, these books still have universal themes.
The setting of YA fiction is a common setting for young adult novels. Its protagonists live in a society characterized by mysterious and powerful authorities. The plots often revolve around the protagonist's obsession with the secret society. While these hands can be either benign or evil, the motives of the spying eyes don't matter. Instead, YA fiction portrays a young hero who is frustrated by the authority figures she meets.
The age of the protagonist plays a significant role in defining YA fiction from adult fiction. While the protagonist in Small Spaces is 17, the protagonist in The Girl on the Train is thirty-three. These differences do not make the two categories indistinguishable. They are distinguished by the age of the main character and the concerns of the young adult protagonist. The voice is also a factor in identifying which category of literature to read.
YALSA recognizes the literary merit of YA fiction, which is a popular genre in the language arts. Its members award the Michael L. Printz Award, given annually to the "best" young adult book of the year, for example. Although this award is intended for young adults, many bestselling adult authors have written for teenagers. These authors include Michael Chabon, Isabel Allende, Dale Peck, Joyce Carol Oates, and Francine Prose.
YA fiction is often considered a problem novel and a coming-of-age novel. Its characters often face intense emotions and existential angst, as they realize that their life is about to change fundamentally when they enter adulthood. These books are about overcoming adolescence, losing innocence, and changing one's sense of identity. The genre of young adult fiction is increasingly thriving in the language arts, with more than 10,000 titles published in 2012.
YALSA recognizes the diversity of YA fiction and aims to acknowledge this in their expanding awards and lists. These lists now include audio books and graphic novels. YALSA also recommends Best Books for Young Adult Readers. These lists are a fantastic place to start a discussion about YA literature. They may even spark an interest in the genre for your children. And who can blame them?
The genre of YA fiction has a specific audience and can be challenging to create. A YA writer should aim to empower young readers rather than patronize them. A writer should consider their target audience when creating a book, as many writers aren't interested in the sales numbers. A strong plot is essential in YA fiction, and a protagonist's personal growth should be the focus of the entire book. A protagonist should actively transform throughout the book, and readers should be able to gain insight from his growth.
Resources for finding YA books
For new teachers, choosing appropriate YA books can be a challenge. It's even more daunting when you have to share these titles with parents or colleagues. The key to finding the right YA book is to read it yourself and pay attention to potential connections between students and the characters, setting, writing style, and community issues. The author's voice and values are also important considerations. Fortunately, there are many resources available to help teachers find YA titles.
In addition to providing students with great literature, educators can also pair classic works with contemporary YA texts. For instance, students may relate better to YA characters than classic texts. Additionally, these contemporary works may provide a new way for students to view classic works in new ways. Listed below are some resources for finding YA books for language arts. They may inspire a writer's next novel. These books can also be used in language arts lessons to introduce YA themes.
YA author websites are a great source of information about each book, including book reviews and other critical responses. Some authors have posted excerpts of their novels on their websites, while others share links to their websites. ALAN Online, for example, offers literary analysis essays and interviews with authors. Teachers can access archived issues of the journal. While some YA authors are not able to blog, they have an active online presence.
Libraries are another good resource for finding YA books for language arts. You can also check out your school library. The librarian at your school will order YA books on a regular basis, so she should have plenty of YA titles to choose from. YA literature is becoming a popular genre in language arts, and librarians should be aware of these new books. So, how do you find the best YA books for language arts?
While classic literature often addresses controversial topics, the weight of their history makes them relatively safe and educational for students. YA literature, on the other hand, explores the reality of being a teenager today. Oftentimes, these titles tackle issues of violence, drugs, and sexuality. Because of the lack of weight of history, YA titles are more likely to come under attack. However, teachers can navigate this territory with care.
A well-organized list of YA books in language arts can be challenging. However, these websites can help. Not only will they provide titles by genre, but also provide helpful information about the authors and the themes. Moreover, you can view a complete hierarchical structure of the website.
