dc.description.abstract The intention of this essay is to; first of all, present a sound argument for the use of adolescent, or young adult, literature in the contemporary secondary school classroom. Much research supporting this argument for such implementation is included. More specifically, the primary premises are that adolescent literature can be an effective tool for captivating student interest, and that this general literary interest can be utilized to prompt students to read, and hopefully enjoy, the established "classic" literature of the canon. In addition to this general argument, the adolescent novel The Outsiders by S. E. Hinton is alluded to in the form of what most closely equates a case study. In other words, this young adult work is examined in several ways in which it might be incorporated into the English / language arts curriculum.
