The scope and theme of Tooning In aim to insert into the debate surrounding so-called "popular culture" and its role in shaping society specific perspectives regarding popular culture and adolescents' lives. The authors suggest that popular culture is vital to how adolescents make sense of the world and educators should tap into it as a tool for imparting critical thinking skills and generally empowering students. Tooning In critically examines and interprets concepts of popular culture, with the ultimate aim of inviting readers to re-examine the fundamental aspects of popular culture as a societal force.
