Why We Teach YA LIt Statement

JC: Young adult literature is a significant genre of reading as it relates to adolescents at a time in their lives where growth and evolution are extremely important. The lessons, morals, advice and information that can be learned through literature at this age is very imperative, insofar as it can teach teens how to develop into mature adults. Moreover, the experiences that are conveyed in YA novels and books makes adolescents feel like they are not alone in the plights that they encounter as they become “grown-ups”. It is for this particular reason and for my affinity in reading about human narratives why I would like to teach YA Lit. – JC
