Adolescent Development Issues in the Classroom.
Tillotson, Jerry
This study was conducted to identify the kinds of student issues involving growing up and adolescent development that teachers deal with most often. A survey on adolescent development issues was administered to 37 school teachers, administrators and other personnel involved with students in grades 5 through 12 in the Morristown, Vermont school district. The findings suggest that family and peer relationships seem to be at the root of most of the challenges reported. It appears that problems and challenges ranked below family and peer issues (substance abuse, identity development, self-esteem) are linked to, if not the direct result of, one or both of those two primary concerns. Sixty-two percent of respondents reported that between 25% and 50% of their students experienced more stable environments at school than they did at home. Five open-ended questions on the school's role in responding to adolescent development issues were included in the survey. This report contains the transcribed answers to those questions as they were written on the surveys. (NB)
