Developing independence and shared responsibility. Collaborating and communicating effectively. Establishing valuable work habits. Harnessing emotions. Finding motivation. We all want teens to acquire these vital skills and engage meaningfully in academics. In this insightful and culturally responsive guide, Poliner and Benson integrate these lifelong skills into daily practices through:
- •Practical applications for diverse populations in every class, advisory, team, or club
- •The latest research on best practices from adolescent psychology, neuroscience, mental health, and school climate
- •Tools for teachers, administrators, counselors, and parents to help teens succeed now and later in school, home, workplace, and community.
Teaching the Whole Teen supports adolescents and adults within the school to thrive.
