Conversations from the Commissions: Preparing Teachers to Teach Young Adult Literature

Carol A. Pope and Joan F. Kaywell

This article speaks to the difficulty of defining exactly what YA literature is, and the problems that arise with what books count as YA novels.  Young adult literature is relatively new and with the educational system moving towards preparing students for the test, the YA literature is being pushed out of the classroom.  The article is arguing for the importance of YA literature in schools as it enhances the lives of the readers.
