9781891792113: Adolescents at School: Perspectives on Youth, Identity, and Education

As any teacher or parent knows, adolescence is a time when young people grapple with the question, "Who am I?" Issues of race, ethnicity, class, gender, sexual orientation, and ability can complicate this question for adolescents, affecting their schoolwork and their relationships with teachers, family, and peers. Practical and jargon-free, this book examines the complex, changing identities young people manage while they negotiate the challenges of school as it suggests ways to foster the success of every student.

About the Author:

Michael Sadowski is the former Editor of the Harvard Education Letter and is on the Education Faculty at Bard College.

Review:

Adolescents at School is an extraordinary collection. I had a hard time putting it down. Each of these essays digs deeply and thoughtfully into a subject so vital to us all, with exactly the right balance between the personal, the anecdotal, and the research data. Every chapter is a 'critical' read, with a powerful cumulative impact. This book will be central to staff and family discussions at schools everywhere. --Deborah Meier, author of In Schools We Trust and The Power of Their Ideas.

This is an invaluable volume for students of education and counseling at all levels, as well as current educators and parents of adolescents. Summing Up: ESSENTIAL. Undergraduate, graduate and professional collections. --CHOICE: Current Reviews for Academic Libraries, November 2003

"Adolescents at School: Perspectives on Youth, Identity and Education is a very powerful book that should be read by every secondary school teacher, administrator, and school board member. In addition, every parent or guardian of an adolescent child should read this book." -- --Hersh Waxman, Teacher's College Record
