I think that although have YA books available, it is hard to teach them
in high school. Many schools are set curriculums that do not allow for
a lot of time to do other books. I know some classes are able to, but I

do think that each class is different. I think that as teachers we need

to be practical to our students needs. Many have so many obligations
outside of our classes that we can not impose more than they can
handle. I do think that YA books would help through many situations,
and many the best way to get students to read them is with book talks
and set days that allow for reading books other than what is in the
classroom. I really haven't answered your questions. I guess we'll see

what happens next year Amanda. Hopefully we can do all the great things

that we have read about, but they cannot all be in the same year with
the same students.
