• Reading 116: Bell, Understanding adultism: A key to developing positive youth-adult relationships
• Reading 117: Giroux, Terrorizing school children in the American police state

1. The article by Nancy Lesko (“Denaturalizing adolescence”) is dense, I know. But it also has some really important information in it. Based on the historical analysis she presents, articulate how you see the construction of adolescence reflecting Bell’s idea that oppression is both durable/mutable and internalized.

2. Ageism is a form of oppression that targets both young people and elders. All we have to do in order to start in a subordinated position, move to a dominant one, and then move back to a subordinated one is: 1) be born, and 2) not die until we’re old. This is the only positionality we’ll discuss all term in which we all move from subordinate to dominant and back again. Fascinating.
Given that, and given that we know our own experiences of age-based subordination, why do you think we continue to enact ageism when we’re in the dominant position? Provide references back to our reading to support your response.

3. Benevolent oppression is alive and well in performances of ageism. Identify one example of this, either from your life or the text, and anchor that to one of Bell’s, Young’s, or Smith’s characteristics to make the argument that it’s an example of systemic or structural oppression.
