Teachers play a pivotal role in the lives of adolescents. They are charged with the responsibility to educate young people to live as active, informed and engaged members of society. In aspiring to this vision, teachers perform as mentors and role models; collaborators and guides; disciplinarians and managers; assessors and designers.
The Millennial Adolescent offers contemporary insights to those currently teaching, as well as those preparing to become teachers of adolescents. It contains well-known frameworks for developing understandings about adolescents, blended and contrasted with a contemporary socio-cultural construction of adolescence, set in our particular time, era and society.
This book reflects the uniqueness of Australian contexts, while connecting with international trends and global patterns.
