Rock 'n' Roll and Horror Stories: Students, Teachers, and Popular Culture.
Lewis, Cynthia
Journal of Adolescent & Adult Literacy, v42 n2 p116-20 Oct 1998
Argues that a teacher's informed response to popular culture in the classroom requires consideration of how students use it in light of the economics of its production. Illustrates this through the classroom talk of 11- and 12-year-old boys discussing a horror series book. Discusses social uses of popular culture and the role of teachers regarding popular culture.
