Early Adolescence: Understanding the 10 to 15 Year Old.
Caissy, Gail A.
Early adolescence, the period from 10 to 15 years, is a significant transitional period in human development, marking the crossroads between childhood and young adulthood. This book is designed as a guide for parents, teachers, or anyone else who has contact with and who would like to better understand early adolescent children. The chapters in the guide are divided into two main parts: dealing with early adolescent development, behavior, and parenting; and teaching early adolescent students. The chapters deal with the following topics: (1) physical and biological development; (2) the impact of physical development on early adolescents; (3) emotional development; (4) coping with early adolescent emotions; (5) social development; (6) how social development affects early adolescent behavior; (7) intellectual development; (8) what to expect of early adolescents intellectually; (9) managing early adolescent behavior; (10) teachers of early adolescent students; (11) classroom management; (12) teaching and intellectual development; (13) teaching and physical development; (14) social and emotional development and teaching; and (15) the teacher as counselor. A section listing further readings concludes the book. (BGC)
