Title: Dad and daughter responding to adolescent texts: the familial issues of reading together
Author: Doué, Walter Louis
Abstract: My purpose for this study was to explore how a young adolescent and her father select for and discuss adolescent literature . As part of this study , I explored reading response theories , and the importance of adolescent literature and reading . The reasons for selecting this study included the importance of parental involvement in their children's reading , and how important it is for parents to talk about books with their children , especially adolescent children who are embarking upon a stressful period of their lives . Qualitative methodology provided a design for research that attempts to describe and understand educational phenomena and to better understand and describe students' learning through researchers observations , investigations , and document the environment in which the leaming occurs (Creswell , 1994 ; Glesne & Peshkin , 1992 ; Goetz & LeCompte , 1984 ; Guba & Lincoln , 1989 ; Lincoln & Guba , 1985 ) . This study focused on the phenomenological approach . The results of this study have shown me that I am a controlling person and need to change .
