^BOn the First Edition:^R The most effective teaching takes what a student already knows and attaches new concepts to the old. For years English teachers have struggled to teach the likes of ^IJulius Caesar^R and ^IThe Scarlet Letter^R in isolation to students who protest that these 'classics' have nothing in common with their young lives. The authors maintain that there is a better way than pop quizzes and lectures to teach the books and plays that are part of everyone's curriculum. If the teacher can help students understand and enjoy one of the many excellent young adult novels available, then it is possible to link common elements in the young-adult novel to the 'classic' to make that crucial bridge between young lives and a lasting relationship with literature. . . . Every part of this book is useful. . . .This should be required reading for everyone on the English and library staffs. Highly recommended. - The Book Report ^BOn the First Edition:^R Connecting the best YA literature and the classics, this fine, practical guide challenges condescending stereotypes about YA literature and shows how it can be used in the English classroom, across the curriculum, and in the library to open students to the pleasure of reading, at least as an entry or bridge to more complex literature. The largest section of the book discusses using great YA novels with 10 commonly taught classics. Teachers and librarians will find this a well-focused combination of theory and hands-on examples. - Booklist/Reference Books Bulletin The new edition of this professional classic addresses a need in many schools. Aimed at teachers and librarians, the text offers personal experiences, testimonials, data, and theory for incorporating young adult literature into classrooms. . . . This resource is a must-have for all school libraries and one to considered for all public libraries as well. Libraries that use the first edition would do well to consider purchasing the second. - VOYA ^BStarred Review^R Not only are the classics from Twain to Lee covered, but also included are themes from the classic titles, theme connectors to young adult titles, annotated recommended young adult titles that connect to the theme, and a list of other recommended young adult connections. . . . Invaluable as a professional collaborative tool between teachers and librarians, this title will be referred to frequently. Highly recommended. - Library Media Connection ^IFrom Hinton to Hamlet^R advocates a democratic approach to the teaching of the classics. The canon is not merely for honors students; it is for everyone. A fabulous addition to any professional library. - SIGNAL Journal Teachers, parents, and any who would present literature to young adults will want to make ^IFrom Hinton to Hamlet, 2nd Edition: Building Bridges Between Young Adult Literature and the Classics^R by Susan K. Herz and Donald R. Gallo part of their required reading. - Midwest Book Review This book is a must-read for teachers who want to produce not only graduates but also lifelong readers. - Journal of Adolescent & Adult Literacy Teachers, librarians, even parents looking for an inducement for today's teenager to read and connect to the Joad family, Atticus Finch, Ralph and Jack, or even Huckleberry Finn, will find it through this reference read. More than ideas and lesson plans, the book explores what young adult literature is all about, providing success stories from other schools and libraries, and has an impressive resources appendix. Well-organized, practical, interesting, and useful are some of the adjectives that come to mind with this book. . . .This is one book that won't gather dust on the shelf, as it will be busy being used to form literature units throughout the year. - Christian Library JournalReseña del editor:
The required classics in grades 7-12 are often too complex and removed from adolescent experience. This informative text uses thematic groupings built around recent young adult literature (YAL) as bridges to the classics. This second edition, which the authors have revised and greatly expanded, emphasizes the goal of helping teenagers become lifetime readers, as well as critical and confident readers. By pairing the required classics and young adult literature around common themes, the authors illustrate specific theme connections and include extensive lists of annotated YAL titles at the end of each classic title. The new edition features more than 1,000 titles, hundreds published in the last five years. Thirty-three recent YAL titles are included as theme connectors among the twelve most frequently taught classics.
