Practical strategies to help your students overcome the challenges of adolescence
Given the complex physical, emotional and mental changes that occur in adolescence, it is hardly surprising that many teenagers need extra support at this time and, clearly, schools are in a unique position to provide this. Strategies for Supporting Adolescents offers a range of practical ways in which schools can help students deal with these challenges. This informative resource also explains the background story to adolescence and, in particular, how the enormous changes that take place in the adolescent brain affect thinking, feelings and behaviour.
It has long been recognised that students’ attitudes to learning and their ultimate attainment is closely linked to levels of parental involvement. Strategies for Supporting Adolescents also provides clear and practical ways to help schools work more effectively with parents who are experiencing the challenges that arise as children go through adolescence and highlights a number of ways that schools can act in partnership with parents to help individual students, strengthen relationships and benefit the school community as a whole.
Firmly based on current research, Strategies for Supporting Adolescents includes questionnaires, worksheets, tips for parents, audio tracks and additional PowerPoint presentations which will ensure that you have access to best practice information in one convenient location.
