#teachread Final Responses

Throughout Fall 2012, in the Teaching Reading in Secondary English Language Arts course at NYU, we investigated reading and teaching reading in the digital age. We read one Young Adult novel from the books listed below, and set up a social media venue to explore, discuss, and engage with others about our YA books. 

As we read and explored these genres, we conducted a study of what it means to read, comprehend and experience texts designed for adolescents and digital reading. Once we finished reading our novels and interacting through social media services, we composed a genre analysis that included identifying the characteristics of today’s YA Lit and social media, and why and how these genres, our chosen book and chosen social media platform could/should be incorporated into the curriculum.
