Youth Cultures, Language, and Literacy

Edited by:

March 2011 | 256 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc

Drawing upon international research, Review of Research in Education, Volume 35 examines the interplay between youth cultures and educational practices. Although the articles describe youth practices across a range of settings, a central theme is how gender, class, race, and national identity mediate both adult perceptions of youth and youths' experiences of schooling.
