I heard that teachers and schools are beginning to think that informational texts (like articles in newspapers) are more important than literature! 

Do you agree/disagree?

Why should we read YAL?

What are some benefits of reading YAL?

I think that informational texts and literature are equally important. Newspapers help students become aware of what is going on in the world, while literature can start important conversations about human nature and the future.
