Understanding Youth: Adolescent Development for Educators
Nakkula, Michael J.; Toshalis, Eric
Harvard Education Press
Adolescent development research and theory have tremendous potential to inform the work of high school teachers, counselors, and administrators. "Understanding Youth" bridges the gap between adolescent development theory and practice. Nakkula and Toshalis explore how factors such as social class, peer and adult relationships, gender norms, and the media help to shape adolescents' sense of themselves and their future expectations and aspirations. An index is included.
