Abstract

This book considers the practical intersection between digital media and young adult texts. In these books, teachers and teacher educators offer practical examples for engaging students with crafting critical responses to young adult literature through digital spaces. It examines how teachers can use these spaces to help students encounter, evaluate, and engage in the world in which they live. Young adult literature offers a vehicle through which students can discuss and explore the world in a more removed manner, while digital media offers a paradigm for helping students craft multimodal responses that extend beyond the traditional literary essay. This intersection asks teachers to consider how they are asking students to interact with the texts they read. It asks them to invite students to enter and contribute to broader conversations through the production of their own texts. This book illustrates pedagogical principles in practice, showing what is possible in literature study in classrooms.
