Urdan (Santa Clara University) and Pajares (Emory University) explore challenges facing adolescents and their teachers and look at some of the strategies that have been adopted to address these challenges. Contributors describe various psychological and contextual problems that adolescents often experience, such as depression, abusive sexual experiences, and peer harassment, and examine cultural and contextual factors that influence students' academic experiences. Final chapters examine adolescent identity in greater detail. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
