Focus on the Wonder Years: Challenges Facing the American Middle School

Synopsis

Young teens undergo multiple changes that seem to set them apart from the other students. But do middle schools actually meet their special needs? In Focus on the Wonder Years, the authors describe the unique challenges faced by middle schools and offer ways to tackle them, such as reassessing the organization of grades K-12; specifically assisting the students most in need; finding ways to prevent disciplinary problems; and helping parents understand how they can help their children learn at home.
