Literary heritages, cultural contexts and contemporary reading practices

Jaqueline Manuel, Sue Brindley

Teenagers and Reading
Teenagers and Reading: Literary heritages, cultural contexts and contemporary reading practices brings together international research and practical perspectives on the current state of teenagers' reading. The contributions by teachers, researchers and other educators explore the 'what, how, when, where, and why' of adolescents' reading, advancing our understanding of the relationships between and among teenage readers, texts and contexts.
