We’re going to Albuquerque in November 2010! The YA Lit Symposium Task Force is very excited about the plans for the next Young Adult Literature Symposium: Beyond Good Intentions: Diversity, Literature, and Teens.
One of the best parts of being on the YA Lit Symposium Task Force is reviewing the symposium preconference, program, and paper proposals. This is where you come in â€“ proposals are currently being accepted for the symposium. Does the current YA Lit meet the needs of your diverse teens? How do you use the literature with your teens? If it isn’t meeting the needs, what are some things that you are doing to meet their needs? What impact is current generation having on the literature world? The proposal deadline is October 1, 2009.
What do YOU want to learn about at the symposium?
