I am taking an ELA cluster about using adolescent literature in the classroom. We had to do a survey about books that left an impression on people when they were teens. I got some really interesting answer, so I thought I would ask you all too! Here are the questions. 1. What book did you read as an adolescent that had a strong impact on how you viewed the world or how you viewed yourself? 2. Was the book written for young adolescents, for adults, or was it a classic? 3. Did you read the book in school or out of school? 4. How did you find the book (e.g., recommended by a friend, librarian, required reading)? 5. In what ways did the book deal with physical, emotional, moral, social, or intellectual issues or themes? 6. For you, what was the value of the book?
