Works about this Work

BlackWords : Serious Issues for Young Readers Anita Heiss , 2015 single work criticism
— Appears in: The BlackWords Essays 2015; (p. 8)

In this essay Heiss discusses Indigenous-authored works that are targeted for upper-primary and young adult readers, that address issues of identity, self esteem, relationships and peer-group pressure that are available for both educators and students. Heiss recommends that these works discussed in this essay, will not only engage young Indigenous students, but also non-Indigenous students and other readers with a sense of sameness in terms of coming of age, facing friendships, and the growing pains that all teenagers face.
