Good Morning:

Thanks so much everyone for your input on this.  It has been very helpful.
I have included here all of the responses I received because I wasn't sure
they all came through in the list-serve thread.

Good Morning,

My school is beginning AP English for the first time.  The teacher is very
excited and has a great list of classic to include in his curriculum.  I
would also like to encourage some modern titles to his selection.  Do you
have any suggestions?  I especially would like titles that are being used
in AP classes around the state.  Your insights are greatly appreciated.

Hello Bill!

Are you adding AP Literature or AP Language and Composition. Lit uses
literary texts while Lang/Comp uses non-fiction informational texts.

 Bill,****

** **

A person who you might want to contact with this question is Rachel Wadham
at the Harold B. Lee Library at BYU.  I don’t know her personally but I
recently attended a workshop she taught about (among other things) using
contemporary YA literature to support the new Common Core standards.  I’m
sure the standards for AP English are a little bit different than the
Common Core, but the philosophy would be the same.  I believe she said she
is working on a book on this very subject.****

** **

Here is her bibliography of references about using YA literature in
classroom:
http://lib.byu.edu/sites/education/files/2008/10/Young-Adult-Literature-and-the-CCSS-Bibliography1.pdf
****

** **

She doesn’t have a list yet of examples for every standard (which some of
us at the conference were requesting of her) but here is the Powerpoint
from her presentation (I’m not sure how much sense it will make independent
of the presentation – the end slides give examples of contemporary YA books
that could be used with each anchor standard of the Common Core.) :
http://lib.byu.edu/sites/education/files/2008/10/UMLS-Training-Collection-Development-and-The-Common-Core.ppt
****

** **

And here is her site where I found these documents (and a lot of other
resources): http://lib.byu.edu/sites/education/****

Hope this is helpful.  Thanks,****

go to Pioneer Library and click a new resource called "hippocampus" that
has AP English course material. Good luck. Laura

 Contact Rachel Wadham at BYU
She has done some conferences talking about classics to be replaced with
more current books with same themes etc to discuss that would be more
appropriate to kids now-a-days & comparing Lexile levels to be appropriate
& related to the Common Core (for instance even though Of Mice & Men is
Lexile 400 -- it doesn't mean it should be read by a 4th grader.--I can't
remember the exact figures-- the information contained is not appropriate
or understandable by a young child...even though lexile level is so low.)

She had example of what to read instead of Fahrenheit 451... etc

Which books to read to emphasize plot or style & tone, or levels of
meaning, conflict, connections, etc....

She talked about how the Common Core suggests that 8th grade read Patterson
Mandarin Ducks & 9th grade should read Kafka... Why the huge jump?!
Common Core seems to think nothing good was written after 1930-- there are
many good books & if you have the kids read one too soon (young) they won't
understand it or the concept you are trying to teach.
The book Divergent is WAY BETTER to determine theme, emotion, look at world
in diff ways, theme generates knowledge...&???     than 1984
Day of tears   excellent for dialogue
Eragon excellent for task dimensions  anchor standard 4... uses word
meaning sense of time & place
Beastly  Alex Flinn  (retelling of Beauty & the Beast)  Anchor standard 7
artistic medium connection how tell as visual, short story, fable,
Dark of the moon  Tracy Barrett   Anchor standard 9  modern work draws on
themes of past

Lockdown by Walter Deam Myers  better than Crime & Punishment

ask her for a list  classic --to teach everything     from Hinton to Hamlet

http://lib.byu.edu/sites/education/booklists/

rachel_wadham at byu.edu


It would be better coming from her--my notes are not complete and hard to
understand...  :-)
