About this product
- DescriptionSuperman comics, Jimmy Cagney gangster films, Pink Floyd, the Beatles, and a modern-day New England Emile - unlikely companions for the Beaver and his picture-perfect parents June and Ward? Not at all in this cache of thought-provoking essays on the cause, effect, and reciprocal relationships among popular culture, education, and adolescent behavior. Twelve educators analyze the evidence and arrive at diametrically opposite conclusions - and many points between. Pessimists see rampant deterioration in our educational process and product; optimists perceive encouraging signs of progress and potential for ethical improvement. Only time will tell who is right. Individual essay bibliographies provide a valuable resource of 350 relevant titles. Images of Youth is stimulating reading for both expert and neophyte in the field.
