Middle School Research. Selected Studies 1981.
Erb, Thomas Owen, Ed.
The ten studies contained in this volume mark the third publication by the National Middle School Association of research on early adolescent education. The previous issues are ED 214 273 and ED 214 283. The papers in the 1981 edition represent a broad range of middle school research topics and methodologies. A number of studies in this volume deal with school climate and organization. Others examine teachers' involvement in decision-making and their job satisfaction. A third set focuses on student attitudes toward science and student response to the loss of a parent. One study looks at parental behavior. Two studies are related to the teaching of particular subject areas, language arts and reading. Finally, an ethnographic study takes a holistic look at middle school classrooms. A bibliography accompanies each study. (Author/MLF)
