Meeting the Needs of Students in Transition
Summers, Al; Moehnke, Larry
National Middle School Association (NJ1), Middle Ground v10 n2 p39-40, 42 Oct 2006
As our society becomes more mobile, smooth and rewarding student transitions become more important. This article describes a partnership between U. S. Army Child and Youth Services and the Military Child Education Coalition that helps schools ease transitions for thousands of students. The program is based on the principle that transition does not have to be difficult, just different. When students do not feel threatened by the transition process, and when someone understands them and shares in this transition, the process is more acceptable and less stressful.
