From my round table at "The Vision of ALAN: Rationales and Strategies for Using Young Adult Literature in Secondary Classrooms" an ALAN-sponsored session at NCTE17 which focused on the vision of ALAN. Five roundtables, each hosted by a past chair of the Walden Award, focused on different young adult literature (YAL) topics including the literary merit of YAL, using YAL in the classroom, and research supporting YAL. Attendees will be free to move to the roundtable of their choosing, and will have opportunities to switch tables/topics during the session. Roundtable leader(s) will provide materials for attendees to take back to their school sites, including book lists, teaching strategies, and rationales for challenged titles. My round tables topic was Text Sets.
