Item description for Adolescence and Education: General Issu in the Education of Adolescents (A volume in Adolescence and Education) (Adolescence & Education) by Tim Urdan & Frank Pajares...

Adolescence and Education is a new book series devoted to presenting quality research aimed at under-standing and enhancing the education of adolescent students. In this innaugural volume, a number of top scholars examine several of the key issues concerning the education of adolescent students. These issues include motivation, standardized testing, curriculum and teaching, the social world of adolescents, and the social structure of middle and high schools. The contents and authors for the first volume in the series are presented below."

In this inaugural volume, we solicited chapters from leading scholars in a variety of fields related to education. Our aim was to provide a broad overview of several of the most pressing concerns regarding the education of adolescent students. The volume begins with an historical perspective from Barbara Finklestein, who provides background regarding America's changing perceptions of adolescence as a developmental period and how American society has approached the task of educating this age group over time. This is followed by chapters from Carol Midgley and from Sanford Dornbusch and Jeanne Kaufman regarding the organization, purpose, and function of schools designed to serve early and late adolescents. Midgley uses an achievement goal theory lens to analyze middle level schools; Dornbusch and Kaufman consider senior high schools, adopting a more sociological perspective.

Reviews - What do customers think about Adolescence and Education: General Issu in the Education of Adolescents (A volume in Adolescence and Education) (Adolescence & Education)?

Finally, a great look at American adolescence.  Apr 1, 2002
This volume is the first on a new series on Adolescence and Education, edited by two renown professors, Frank Pajares of Emory University and Tim Urdan of Santa Clara University. This first book covers general issues and begins with a first-rate chapter from Barbara Finkelstein that provides an overview of the history of adolesncence from an American perspective. The Woolfolk, Midgley, and Kaufman chapters are superb. The book should be of interest to anyone interested in how modern scholars are conceptualizing adolescence in American society today.
 
Excellent Academic Scholarship  Apr 1, 2002
This is the first volume of a a new book series on adolescence and education. Clearly, the series has excellent promise. This volume includes chapters by some of the nation's top scholars. The first chapter by Barbara Finkelstein on the history of adolescence/education is first-rate. Should be of great interest to all readers, particularly undergraduate and graduate students in psychology, education, and social science.
