In "Legends, Myths & Journeys" annienomad-cyberpoet's latest collection of poems, Sharee Anne Gorman hopes to provide young people with a relatable example of the examined life through the language of myth. With this goal in mind she has put together a collection to help develop the observational and critical thinking tools necessary to create a meaningful existence. "Legends, Myths & Journeys" invites readers young (and old) on a quest to question the automatic nature of our modern existence and to rediscover the wonder of our authentic selves - that essential part of us that sometimes gets lost in the maelstrom of social media, violent video games and the consumer conformity that makes up much of our daily lives.

Using literature in the EFL classroom is not an easy task, especially when learners do not master a high level of language competence. However, the results of the inclusion of literature in our curricula are worth the effort, not only in terms of language improvement, but also of motivation and personal growth.Think Outside the Box comprises seven different proposals to help the EFL teacher in secondary schools open a space for the exploration of literary texts in their classes with young adults. These simple and ready-to-use sequences of activities, whose level of difficulty goes from level A2 to level B1 of the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR), aim at catering for a wide range of situations by varying in:Genres: poems, novels, and a reader.Timing: going from one-class activities to longer ones that lead to projectwork.Topics and themes: the literary texts chosen not only explore those themes young adults are most interested in, like love, pain and loneliness, but also those that may be related to more universal ideas, like war, politics and stereotypes.Approaches: focusing on language, personal enrichment, author, theme, different literary devices and genres.

This landmark volume is the first to bring together leading scholarship on children’s and young adult literature from three intersecting disciplines: Education, English, and Library and Information Science. Distinguished by its multidisciplinary approach, it describes and analyzes the different aspects of literary reading, texts, and contexts to illuminate how the book is transformed within and across different academic figurations of reading and interpreting children’s literature. Part one considers perspectives on readers and reading literature in home, school, library, and community settings. Part two introduces analytic frames for studying young adult novels, picturebooks, indigenous literature, graphic novels, and other genres. Chapters include commentary on literary experiences and creative production from renowned authors and illustrators. Part three focuses on the social contexts of literary study, with chapters on censorship, awards, marketing, and literary museums. The singular contribution of this Handbook is to lay the groundwork for colleagues across disciplines to redraw the map of their separately figured worlds, thus to enlarge the scope of scholarship and dialogue as well as push ahead into uncharted territory.
