The Best Young Adult Books Contest: A Simulation for the Language Arts Classroom presents a program that involves the whole classroom in an effort to plan, develop, and perform a mock "academy awards" show. The reader is guided through each and every step of the process, beginning with students reading and nominating books in eight categories and ending with a full-fledged production.
Full of reproducible handouts, forms, templates, and student-written scripts, The Best Young Adult Books Contest is a classroom simulation that promotes the reading of young adult literature and allows all students to cultivate a variety of skills, including reading, written and oral communication, performing and visual arts, and technology.
