Developmentally Appropriate Middle Level Schools.
Manning, M. Lee
This monograph examines early adolescence as a developmental period and explains the physical, psychosocial, and cognitive characteristics of 10- to 14-year-olds. The monograph also discusses how middle schools can provide developmentally appropriate educational experiences. Chapter 1 of the monograph explores early adolescence as a developmental period, and provides examples of efforts to promote adolescent development. In chapter 2, research on physical, psychosocial, and cognitive development is examined, and a developmental portrait of young adolescent learners is provided. Chapter 3 shows how young adolescents' physical, psychosocial, and cognitive development can form the basis for developmentally appropriate curricular and instructional decisions in middle schools. Finally, chapter 4 provides resources for middle school educators, including an annotated bibliography. An appendix provides a checklist to determine middle schools' response to young adolescents' developmental characteristics. Contains over 180 references. (MM)
