The Relevance of Adolescent Literature.
LaRocque, Geraldine E.
The English Record, v20 n1 p56-63 Oct 1969
Although summer writer's conferences have added adolescent literature to their programs and many professional educators have recommended a required course in adolescent literature for all high school English teachers, adolescent literature is still neglected, especially by English teachers. All students at some time in their literary growth enjoy adolescent literature; consequently, English teachers need to be aware both of the various stages of literary appreciation and of students' interests at different ages. Such studies as those by J. Harlan Shores on reading interests, as reported in an article in "The Reading Teacher" (April 1964), and Margaret Early's "Stages of Growth in Literary Appreciation" (in the book, "Teaching English in Today's High Schools," ed. Dwight Burton and John Simmons) ought to be a part of every teacher's background. (JM)
