The Basics of/and Individualizing Adolescent Literature for 150 Kids, More or Less.
Haley, Beverly
This paper asserts that what is really basic in education lies first in recognizing what it means to be human, to accept the challenges and pains and joys of being alive, and to attempt not only to preserve but to raise the level of that humanity a notch or so for the next generation. It is suggested that adolescent literature can be a vehicle for those who are struggling to break the bonds of childhood to enter into maturity. Passages from various adolescent novels are quoted which exemplify stages in adolescent development and those problems often encountered during the period of adolescence. A selected, annotated list of adolescent novels is also included. (LL)
