Teaching Literacy Skills to Adolescents Using Coretta Scott King Award Winners has everything teachers need to create lessons in core subjects using the very best of young-adult literature. It offers a rich compilation of classroom-proven reading, writing, and vocabulary activities for promoting strong literacy skills in adolescents. Each chapter focuses on a Coretta Scott King Award winner, offering a selection from the text, a biographical sketch of the author, complete bibliographic information, an annotation, suggested grade level, and discussion questions. These are followed by a series of research-based reading and writing strategies for the book, plus activities in a reproducible format, all targeted to middle or high school grade levels. In addition to chapters on individual titles, the book includes an introductory section that explores the purpose and legacy of The Coretta Scott King Award, as well as the latest developments in literacy research.
