Adolescent Development and Secondary Schooling. Conference Proceedings from the Wisconsin Center for Education Research (Madison, WI, February 1982).
Newmann, Fred M., Ed.; Sleeter, Christine E., Ed.
This document contains the papers presented at a conference that addressed the paucity of research on the relationship between schooling and adolescent development. The first four papers with reaction/comment statements focus on the following topics: (1) distinguishing the appropriate responsibilities of schools to adolescent development; (2) identifying the ways secondary schools differ from other environments such as home, work, and peer groups; (3) assessing the effect of school organizational features (e.g., student and adult roles, reward structures, rule-making and -enforcing) on adolescent development; and (4) citing programs and curricula that positively influence adolescents. In addition, two general background papers are provided, including a brief summary of literature on adolescence and a description of secondary education studies currently in progress. An interpretive summary of the conference and a section on professional experiences and training of conference participants conclude this volume. (Author/HLM)
