McEnerny, M: Teacher's Journey to Adolescence
Framed through the lens of resilience, this scholarly book -- told through engaging personal narrative -- moves away from the current educational emphasis on assessment, standards, and expectations. Instead, it explores the cognitive, social, and emotional needs of adolescents, parents, and teachers with a focus on the authentic classroom experience. Dr. McEnerny shares her memories of adolescence, reflects upon her experiences parenting adolescents, and reveals her insights gained by over a decade of teaching adolescents. Backed by research from experts in the field including other educators, psychologists, philosophers, and students themselves, the story unfolds through themes of understanding, purpose, perseverance, and hope. It carries the reader through the seasons, from a winter of growth to a spring of hope for the future of education. This book is a resource for parents, teachers, and everyone else who shares a meaningful connection with young adolescents through the dynamic life stage that occurs in the middle grades.
Monica McEnerny is Assistant Professor of Education at Castleton College in Castleton, Vermont, where she facilitates learning for pre-service teachers. She is passionate about student centered, brain based, literacy instruction, especially at the middle level, and she enjoys outdoor adventures, poetry, travel, technology, singing, and theater.
