Young Adult Fiction as Literacy Sponsorship
JONATHAN ALEXANDER - CONTRIBUTIONS BY WILLIAM P. BANKS AND REBECCA BLACK
Writing Youth: Young Adult Fiction as Literacy Sponsorship shows how many young adult novels model for young people ways to manage the various media tools that surround them. Jonathan Alexander examines not only young adult texts and their media ecologies but also young people’s multiliterate media making in response to their favorite texts and stories. As such, this book will be of interest to anyone concerned about young people’s literacies and the relationship between literacy development and the culture industries.
