Pre-Summit Status of the Field Questionnaire
This questionnaire is primarily for people who research and teach young adult literature. The information in this questionnaire will be used to help frame the topics of discussion at the 2018 Summit on the Teaching and Research of Young Adult Literature and possibly lead to future research. It for Summit participants, but also for colleagues unable to attend as we are interested in gathering information about the current status of the field of YA research and education. We realize that most of the questions require a short written response. We felt it was the best way to more ideas rather than providing checklists at various points in the survey. It should take about 15-20 minutes to complete. The questionnaire responses might also be used for research purposes (e.g, a journal article); completing the form is tacit consent for researchers connected to the summit to use the information you provide.
