Front Cover
Allen & Unwin, Sep 1, 2005 - Education - 368 pages
The middle years of schooling are increasingly recognised as a crucial stage in students' lives, one that has significant consequences for ongoing educational success. International research indicates that young adolescents benefit from programs designed especially for their needs, and the middle years have become an important reform issue for education systems.

Teaching Middle Years offers a systematic overview of the philosophy, principles and issues in middle schooling. It includes contributions from academics and school-based practitioners on intellectual and emotional development in early adolescence, pedagogy, curriculum and assessment of middle years students.

Written for teachers, student teachers, education leaders and policy makers, Teaching Middle Years is an essential resource for anyone involved in educating young adolescents.

'Teaching Middle Years is the first comprehensive Australian book to match and surpass the quality of many overseas publications.'

Professor Robert Hardingham, former President of the Middle Years of Schooling Association
