The middle and high school years are challenging times for both teachers and students, and motivating adolescents can be the most critical task confronting educators. This book provides teachers with an in-depth look at the ways that adolescents learn and how teachers can inspire student interest and participation.

Understanding & Engaging Adolescents blends concepts of learning and motivation with classroom applications and activities. The authors cover theory, learning styles, and classroom management and present easy-to-implement, innovative strategies that educators can use to connect meaningfully with their students.
