The Education of Young Adolescents: Implications for Schooling and Teacher Education.
Queensland Board of Teacher Education, Toowong (Australia).
Teacher educators, teachers, parents, and principals participated in a 1983 seminar in Australia on early adolescents. A literature review on schooling for early adolescents was prepared as background reading for seminar participants. The opening address was given by Professor Colin Power, Flinders University of South Australia, who outlined the educational needs of early adolescents and proposed a number of ways in which schools and teachers could meet these needs. In his address to the seminar, Dr. John Manning, Brisbane College of Advanced Education, suggested ways in which teacher education could help to develop in teachers the attitudes and skills which are necessary to effectively meet the needs of early adolescents. Following each of these addresses, seminar participants were invited to put questions and comments to a panel. Contents of this booklet include: (1) "Schooling for Early Adolescents: A Review of the Literature" (M. Bella); (2) "Meeting the Needs of Children in the Early Adolescent Years" (C. Power); (3) Discussion Following Power's Paper; (4) "Teacher Education and the Middle School" (J. Manning); (5) Discussion Following Manning's Paper; (6) Recommendations from Seminar; and (7) list of Conference Participants. (JMK)
