Teenage Television Viewing. Focused Access to Selected Topics (FAST) Bibliography No. 8.
Surveying the television habits of teenagers, this annotated bibliography contains 30 references of articles and papers in the ERIC database. The first section, "Impact on Health, Sexual Behavior, Use of Alcohol," addresses such issues as the relationship of viewing sexual content to sexual activity and sex role acquisition, and relationships between amount of viewing and the way youth deals with stress and other pressures. Sources in the second section, "TV Violence and Teenage Behavior," examine concerns such as the relationship between media content and antisocial behavior and possible connections between fantasy violence and real-world violence. Sources cited in the section on "Impact on Other Social Behaviors" deal with TV's possible role as a socializing agent and relationships between television viewing and academic achievement. In the last section, "Viewing Habits," the sources cited examine and report on the monitoring of television viewing, parental intervention, educational uses of television, and other concerns parents and teachers are likely to have.
