Featuring the latest research on the adolescent brain, this second edition offers teachers fresh instructional strategies that work for engaging erratic, distracted, and often unpredictable teenagers. Lighthearted and informative, this hands-on resource helps educators understand the key issues affecting cognition and adolescent learners' emotional, social, and physical well-being. Each chapter is supported with a multitude of techniques that can be adapted to individual content areas and teachers will find new sections about technology and the brain and mirror neurons and at-risk behaviors like cutting, violence and aggression.
