Once again a comprehensive description of truly responsive middle level teaching, the Third Edition features:

  • the most recent research on physical, socio-emotional, cognitive, and identity developmental processes

  • the impact of technology and social media on students’ lives and learning

  • new research in middle level education supporting the development of genuine middle schools
