Research from psychology and sociology has demonstrated that biography is assuming a powerful role in the sociological and psychological well being of youth. Biographies present role models, and define acceptable behaviors, social expectations, and values. They also demonstrate what is rewarded in society and what is less valued. Taking an approach that is at once theoretical and practical, Biography in the Lives of Youth was written to help librarians, teachers, and youth workers better understand the power of biography, and the ways it can be used. Major topics include: biography in life and in learning; biography as used both in school library media center, the public library, and the classroom; biography as literature; biography as contemporary commentary; biography for the very young; biography as it affects attitudes and behaviors; and biography as social dialogue.Bulletin for the Center for Childrena#39;s Books.
