Problems of Adolescence in the Secondary School

Problems of Adolescence in the Secondary School

Published in 1983. Adolescence is a period of change for all and turmoil for some. Many adolescents have problems which are easily identified but for others the problems are more subtle. There is an interaction between their own difficulties and the systems of home, school and their own society. In this case, problems, which are very real, are more difficult to define and to deal with. This book aims to help teachers to recognise and understand the common problems of adolescents, as they are relevant to their schooling. In addition, suggestions are made to help both teachers and adolescents overcome these difficulties. Besides the more immediately obvious issues of learning and behaviour, there is also discussion of sexual behaviour, vandalism and substance abuse. Throughout the book the common theme is that all problem behaviour must be understood and acted upon within a context, and not regarded as examples of individual delinquency. Finally, the implications of the 1981 Education Act and its impact on teachers is considered. Under this law, a much wider range of young people will be deemed to have special educational needs. Consequently, all teachers of adolescents will need to be aware of the issues raised and discussed in this book.
