A slim but useful guide to the teaching and interpretation of Robert Cormier's works. I like how the author focused on his lesser-known novels. This book could have had another go with the copyeditor though; I spotted a few small errors. ( )

Robert Cormier's works are read and enjoyed by countless young adults. He is widely considered the most important young adult novelist, a creator of fully realized, memorable characters whose worlds reflect the issues and thought-provoking themes important to everyone, but especially adolescents. In Teaching the Selected Works of Robert Cormier noted young adult literature advocate and teacher Virginia Monseau helps you bring the works of this masterful writer into your classroom.
Teaching the Selected Works of Robert Cormier draws on the experiences of two high school teachers and a middle school teacher who use Cormier's novels in their English classes. It offers classroom-tested ideas, lessons, and assignments that enrich the study of his works and encourage their inclusion in the curriculum, as well as samples of student writing and artwork created in response to his books. In addition, where previous publications have dealt almost exclusively with Cormier's earlier books, Monseau instead focuses on his powerful but less frequently taught works, including:
Tunes for Bears to Dance To Heroes The Rag and Bone Shop Frenchtown Summer.
Monseau also offers practical advice on teaching Cormier's famed After the First Death, focusing on both its timeless appeal and its currency and relevancy to young adult readers.
Show your middle and high school readers the beauty and poignancy of Robert Cormier's writing. Pick up Teaching the Selected Works of Robert Cormier and find out how you and your students can together approach his work in a new, more responsive way. You'll not only renew your own sense of the value of young adult literature in the curriculum but you'll also rediscover for yourself why Cormier remains one of the most important and most-loved writers among both adolescents and their teachers.
Teaching the Selected Works of Robert Cormier is part of Heinemann's Young Adult Novels in the Classroom series. Edited by Virginia Monseau, the series offers entry points, insights, and strategies for teaching the works of noted young adult authors, including Robert Cormier and Mildred D. Taylor with forthcoming books on Katherine Patterson, Walter Dean Myers, Gary Paulsen, and Chris Crutcher.
