Drawing from the perspectives of teachers, researchers, and administrators—and adolescents themselves—it examines the complex, changing identities young people manage while they confront the challenges of schools.A uniquely practical, insightful, and jargon-free volume, Adolescents at School points to ways to foster the success of every student in our schools and classrooms.
