Quick Overview

Instead of asking literature to meet the recreational,
cultural and of course educational needs of today's youth, Literature
Activities Teens Actually Love empowers teachers to help students work with
literature on their own terms in order to rediscover the joys it holds. Through
a variety of innovative and highly engaging projects, this book will develop a
new lens through which to view literature and its study, showing students that
literature can entertain even as it cultivates their higher-order thinking
skills. Using their technological skills to move from print to non-print
assessments, students will have the opportunity to explore the text with a
greater degree of ownership over the process, resulting in autonomous learners.

Lesson plans incorporating alternatives as diverse as Facebook, quilting and novel “playlists” show how teachers and students can bridge the technology gap by finding creative solutions to traditional academic problems. Using their technological skills to move from print to non-print assessments, students will have the opportunity to explore the text with a greater degree of ownership over the process, resulting in autonomous learners.
