A National Board certified English teacher who loves teaching and reading Young Adult literature, I've designed this website as a resource to those considering using YA in the Common Core classroom. Use my reviews to see what might work for you in your classes, my interviews to help your students make connections to the authors, and my free lesson plans to put those books to work! You'll even find creative approaches to skills and stories that aren't YA-related.
If something works or doesn't, or if you've adapted and modified, I'd love to hear from you! Feel free to comment or contact me.
