"Connecting the Young Adult Literature Community......One Book at a Time" For those of you that have yet to have Dr. Balok for Young Adult Literature, she will have you become a member of ALAN. It will send you a journal (I'm unsure of how many times a year) in regards to lesson plans, whats going on in the young adult literature community, and various other things. It is really great. I read some of the material as soon as I got it and saw how influential it will be when I'm teaching. I will continue to be a member of ALAN when I graduate from school. I think it will make me a better educator and it will keep new ideas coming into my classroom. I think that you all should (if you haven't already) take a look at it.
