Overview

B> This exciting book helps teachers turn high school students into lifelong readers by approaching reading literature as a process and encouraging teachers to center their classroom on the student instead of focussing on the literature. A Classroom of Teenaged Readers explores how teenagers actually read, and conveys the importance of knowing what interests teens and how they evolved as readers. By understanding a teen's reading history, teachers can then create student-centered literature classrooms that focus on the needs and interests of their students. High school English teachers.
