American schools are becoming more diverse and teachers in all parts of the country are dealing with issues related to adolescent development compounded by increased diversity among students. This book is designed to challenge middle level educators to look at traditional middle school philosophy through an examination of social, economic, and cultural conditions. New or experienced teachers may gain insights into the lives of their students and consider ways educators can promote a supportive learning environment. The main emphasis is theory into practice, with theory integrated throughout.
