Coverage balances the practical and the theoretical to provide all of the essential knowledge today's middle school teacher needs concerning the development and characteristics of adolescents; principles, goals, and attributes of the middle school movement; and, organization, curricula, strategies, and concepts of contemporary middle schools. The authors emphasize the diversity of adolescents - in development, culture, gender, and sexual orientation - and the importance that these differences portend for educational experiences and guidance efforts.

Thank you, Lee and Katherine, for a text that continues to make this course I teach rich in content, questions, ideas and learning.” – Dr. Dr. Maribeth Juraska, Aurora University
