View: 620Teaching Young Adult Literature Today introduces the reader to what is current and relevant in the plethora of good books available for adolescents. More importantly, literary experts illustrate how teachers everywhere can help their students become lifelong readers by simply introducing them to great reads smart, insightful, and engaging books that are specifically written for adolescents. Hayn, Kaplan, and their contributors address a wide range of topics: how to avoid common obstacles to using YAL; selecting quality YAL for classrooms while balancing these with curriculum requirements; engaging disenfranchised readers; pairing YAL with technology as an innovative way to teach curriculum standards across all content areas. Contributors also discuss more theoretical subjects, such as the absence of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) young adult literature in secondary classrooms; and contemporary YAL that responds to the changing expectations of digital generation readers who want to blur the boundaries between page and screen."

View: 653"Living Values Education Activities for Young Adults, Book 1," is an updated and expanded edition of the original award winning "Living Values Activities for Young Adults" book. This timely and relevant resource provides an opportunity for educators to facilitate young adults exploring values while developing intrapersonal and interpersonal skills. Engage students cognitively and emotionally to empower them to understand the effect of values and anti-values in relationship to the self, others, the community and the world. Eight values units take up peace, respect, love and caring, tolerance, simplicity and caring for the Earth and her oceans, honesty, happiness and responsibility, with an additional unit on substance abuse. Activities also explore the affect of values on SDGs, and teach assertive and proactive methods to deal with bullying, reflect on and create their own guidelines for involvement in social media, learn how to encourage themselves in positive ways and manage their emotions, and develop a voice and positive social skills to create inclusion and respect. Other current concerns addressed in the values lessons are depression, dealing with anxiety, helping those who are suicidal, dating violence and substance abuse. Growing from strength to strength, Living Values Education has enriched the lives and educational experience of educators and millions of young people around the world since its initial pilot in February 1997. A global endeavor dedicated to nurturing hearts and educating minds, LVE provides an approach and tools to help people connect with their own values and live them. During professional development workshops, educators and facilitators are engaged in a process to empower them to create a caring atmosphere in which young people are valued, respected, understood and safe. With Living Values Education, educators and students become co-creators of a culture of peace and respect, ensuring positive relationships, quality learning and quality education.

View: 730Amid growing recognition that strong academic skills alone are not enough for young people to become successful adults, this comprehensive report offers wide-ranging evidence to show what young people need to develop from preschool to young adulthood to succeed in college and career, have healthy relationships, be engaged citizens, and make wise choices. It concludes that rich experiences combining action and reflection help children develop a set of critical skills, attitudes, and behaviors. And it suggests that policies should aim to ensure that all children have consistent, supportive relationships and an abundance of these developmental experiences through activities inside and outside of school.
