Instead of asking literature to meet the entertainment, cultural, and of course educational needs of today’s youth, Literature Activities Teens Actually Love empowers teachers to guide students in working 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, with activities that are at once highly entertaining yet encourage higher order thinking skills and strategies.

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

Grades 9–12
