The ALAN Review, v10 n3 Spr 1983
The articles in this journal issue focus on adolescent literature. In the first article, author John Neufeld discusses how he chooses a particular topic and writes to uncover his own particular bias. The second article discusses the theme of "a price must be paid" in the works of Ouida Sebestyen while the third article presents an interview with Dean Hughes, author of a Missouri history trilogy. The fourth article discusses three major revisions in a college syllabus for the teaching of adolescent literature: an increased emphasis on the study of literature, a revised reading list incorporating several types of adolescent literature, and an indepth examination of the transition theory. The final article reports on a study that examined the reading interests of students in the panhandle of Nebraska. The issue also contains a review of media materials for use in teaching adolescent literature, brief reviews of new books, and the abstract of a dissertation that surveyed the status of the young adult novel in the secondary school English classroom.
