Modern Realistic Fiction--Shocking to Whom?
Carmichael, Carolyn W.
This document focuses on an approach to solving the problems of youth in the seventies. The point is made that the wide range of choices available to young people today are the result of scientific and technological advances and require the making of value judgments. Since the number of alternatives will increase, it is recommended that today's students be equipped to make these judgments and choices by by being taught the kind of intellectual discipline that will enable them to learn and to accept changing circumstances. As this discipline is acquired through exposure to literature and as there are many books on the market today unavailable to youth, it is proposed that a Youth Review Board be established to pass on some of the literature that is currently restricted from their reading lists.
