Does the design of your school match the needs of your students?  Knowledge about this unique period in the life of a young person can improve the educational setting of your school.  Often referred to as the “father of the middle school movement,” Dr. Lounsbury discusses a variety of topics including development attributes of early adolescents, how new middle school and junior high curriculum should be constructed to meet the needs of early adolescents, and special teacher skills needed to deal with early adolescents.
