Value Acceptance on Adolescent Socialization: A Test of a Cognitive-Functional Theory of Television Effects.
Tan, Alexis; Nelson, Leigh; Dong, Qingwen; Tan, Gerdean
Communication Monographs, v64 n1 p82-97 Mar 1997
Presents a cognitive-functional explanation of television's influence on Anglo-American, Native American, and Hispanic adolescents' acceptance of values. Finds that adolescents accepted values observed in television when they recognized them (a measure of learning) and when they evaluated the values to be important in "being successful" in the United States (a measure of functionality).
