Editorial Reviews

Barbara K. Given
“This is an excellent book that should be of great interest to secondary teachers. The use of the ACT examples add considerable clarity to the concepts being advanced.”
Patricia Long Tucker
"I found myself highlighting a great deal of this book.The text is relevant, real, and worthy of quoting to others to ensure that they truly understand how the adolescent learner processes information and through what type of activities they learn best and are most motivated by.”
Maria Timmons Flores
"The book presents a broad and coherent framework that builds connections across a broad range of theories of adolescent learning and development. The curriculum ideas, questions to prompt teachers' self-reflection, and scaffolds to guide curriculum development all offer tangible tools to teacher educators and leaders in professional development efforts."
