This examination of the literary effectiveness of young adult literature from a critical, research-oriented perspective answers two key questions asked by many teachers and scholars in the field: Does young adult literature stand up on its own as literature? Is it worthy of close study? The treatment is both conceptual and pragmatic. Each chapter discusses a topical text set of YA novels in a conceptual framework—how these novels contribute to or deconstruct conventional wisdom about key topics from identity formation to awareness of world issues, while also providing a springboard in secondary and college classrooms for critical discussion of these novels. Uncloaking many of the issues that have been essentially invisible in discussions of YA literature, these essays can then guide the design of curriculum through which adolescent readers hone the necessary skills to unpack the ideologies embedded in YA narratives. The annotated bibliography provides supplementary articles and books germane to all the issues discussed. Closing "End Points" highlight and reinforce cross-cutting themes throughout the book and tie the essays together.

"Wolk demonstrates how to integrate inquiry learning, exciting and contemporary literature, and teaching for social responsibility across the curriculum. He takes teachers step-by-step through the process of designing an inquiry-based literature unit and then provides five full units used in real middle-grade classrooms. Featuring a remarkable range of recommended resources and hundreds of novels from across the literary genres, Caring Hearts & Critical Minds gives teachers a blueprint for creating dynamic units with rigorous lessons about topics kids care about--from media and the environment to personal happiness and global poverty. Wolk shows teachers how to find stimulating, real-world 'complex texts' called for in the Common Core State Standards and integrate them into literature units."--Publisher's website.

Many teachers of students with mild disabilities experience difficulty writing IEPs, and they lack a foundation in the regular education curriculum of academic skills and sequences associated with each grade level. This book was designed to provide this foundation. Presented in the form of scope and sequence charts that can be used as objectives for the State Frameworks (goals and benchmarks), this resource assists in preparing IEPs, including the new process of identification of children with disabilities through their responses to intervention (RTI). An additional focus is on the impact of federal laws (IDEA and NCLB) on the curriculum and assessment in schools today. The book has been reorganized into ten chapters, including: historical perspectives; early childhood special education curricula; oral expression curricula; reading and listening curricula; written expression curricula; mathematics curricula; educational technology curricula K-12; social and self competence curricula; science curricula; and evaluation reports/case studies (Appendix). The scope and sequence charts were modified to include current national education standards and benchmarks and the skills in each of the academic areas that require annual state assessment. These charts will assist teachers in modifying the general education curriculum for students with mild disabilities and to write complete Individual Education Programs, using age-appropriate and developmentally appropriate teaching and assessment materials. Chapter summaries, included for review purposes, also serve as selective and motivational reading. With special education teachers in short supply and the demands on their time so great, this book will provide a valuable resource for cutting the clutter and moving to the heart of the teaching process: determining what skills students need to move effectively to the next level.
