I am visiting and presenting at the Kennesaw Children's and Young Adult Literature Conference. What a great day! The day focusing on Young Adult Literature has been fantastic. The two author keynotes are Laurie Halse Anderson and Ashley Hope Perez. I was part of a presentation about the teaching of Anderson's Seeds of America Trilogy, March, and All American Boys through a combined Social Studies and English Language Arts lens using primary sources. We will post the resources for that presentation on Friday, March 24, 2017. I also gave a brief presentation about web sources for Young Adult Literature. I selected only ten, of course, there are great many more. I selected ten that I think are anchors, webpages that honor young adult literature and the work of teachers, librarians, researchers, and readers without being overly commercial or controlled by marketing.
