Image of Work in New Young Adult Black Teen Novels: How Well Are We Preparing Our Youth for the World of Work?

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

In an article I wrote for the ALAN REVIEW (February 1983), one of the leading journals for scholars of young adult literature part of the National of Council of Teachers of English, I argued, after examining 40 teen novels written between 1960-1980, that black writers were sending black youth a poor message about the world of work. I examined occupation of mother, occupation of father, how parent prepared teen for a career, whether or not teen was presently working. My results proved that the world of work was ripe with stereotypes and sexism when it came to preparing black female teens.
After examining a new set of 75 novels written between 2000-to the present, my hypothesis was: was there a big difference in the above indices? The results are mixed.
I intend to present a comparative content analysis
