Wyatt’s World: Creating RA Trilogies for Readers — Library Journal Reviews

Wyatt’s World: Creating RA Trilogies for Readers — Library Journal Reviews | Readers Advisory For Secondary Schools | Scoop.it
"With authors such as Anthony Horowitz and P.D. James picking up the threads of past masters, it is a good time to think about creating RA trilogies for readers. By daisy-chaining new, classic, and backlist titles, you can link through your collection and start patrons on threefold reading paths." Neal Wyatt gives a starter pack of 4 x 3. What about starting with Eoin Colfer's And Another Thing, Sebastian Faulks's Devil May Care, Patrick Ness's A Monster Calls, Jean Rhys's The Wide Sargasso Sea or Jill Paton Walsh's Thrones, Dominations? An excellent crossover project.

Reading Maps Remake RA

Reading Maps Remake RA | Readers Advisory For Secondary Schools | Scoop.it

An oft' cited article by Neal Wyatt from Library Journal, 11/01/2006:

"Reading maps are web-based visual journeys through books that chart the myriad associations and themes of a title via other books, pictures, music, links to web sites, and additional material. Reading maps open up the world of the book for the reader by diagramming the internal life of the book, allowing readers to inhabit the text and its outward connections, and enabling readers to follow threads of interest that stem from any particular part of the work."
