About meThis is the first YA literature class I have ever taken. The closest I have come was a Teaching Language Arts class I took several years ago which reviewed literature. I worked with a group who developed a unit plan about Lois Lowry's "Number the Stars." Other than that, I can't think of any classes that would qualify as young adult literature courses. LIS 5564, which I took over the summer, was the first children's literature class I have ever taken. I have used literature in my classroom in the past, but as a 7th grade Geography teacher, I don't have much of an opportunity. There is so much material to cover that there is barely a chance to deviate much at all, and now we are also teaching a state-mandated Career Education course one day a week as well. I really don't know a lot of young adult authors. I used to love reading Judy Blume books, and as an adult I have enjoyed JK Rowling. I recently read "If You Come Softly," by Jacqueline Woodson, and enjoyed it very much. I do not have any young adults of my own, hoewver, my 14 year old niece has read the Warrior series and also enjoys a mystery writer (I can't place the name) who writes for young adults. I also have an account with Goodreads, but that is not for networking as much as a way for me to keep track of the books I have read so far this year.
