This text continues to utilize an effective combination of a friendly writing style, thorough research, and a contextual approach that emphasizes adolescence in contemporary society. The text's careful organization ensures maximum teaching flexibility that allows the chapters to work together to be covered in sequence or to stand alone. Ethnicity and minority issues are thoroughly discussed in a way that enables students to see how the adolescent experience is shaped by class and culture. The strong pedagogical framework helps students organize and integrate material. Thoroughly updated to reflect current findings in the field of adolescent development, Adolescence is based on solid research and theory, yet it has a distinctively "real world" feel that emphasizes the reality of being an adolescent in today's society

Beyond the classroom : why school reform has failed and what parents need to do by Laurence D Steinberg( Book )

10 editions published between 1996 and 2005 in English and held by 1,248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The other great influence on school performance, according to the study reported in this book, is the peer group. Children are strongly influenced by their friends' attitudes toward school. As a group, children whose friends believe that hard work earns rewards and who value good grades do well in school. Unfortunately, according to the study, fewer than one-fifth of all students say that their friends believe it is important to get good grades. For the most part, adolescent peer culture demeans school success and scorns those students who try to do well in school. The peer culture is so powerful that it can even undermine the positive contributions of parents
Age of opportunity : lessons from the new science of adolescence by Laurence D Steinberg( Book )

10 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 1,007 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A leading authority draws on new research to explain why the adolescent years are so developmentally crucial, and what we must do to raise happier, more successful kids. Adolescence now lasts longer than ever before. And as world-renowned expert on adolescent psychology Dr. Laurence Steinberg argues, this makes these years the key period in determining individuals' life outcomes, demanding that we change the way we parent, educate, and understand young people. In Age of Opportunity, Steinberg leads readers through a host of new findings -- including groundbreaking original research -- that reveal what the new timetable of adolescence means for parenting 13-year-olds (who may look more mature than they really are) versus 20-somethings (who may not be floundering even when it looks like they are). He also explains how the plasticity of the adolescent brain, rivaling that of years 0 through 3, suggests new strategies for instilling self-control during the teenage years. Packed with useful knowledge, Age of Opportunity is a sweeping book in the tradition of Reviving Ophelia, and an essential guide for parents and educators of teenagers"--

Rethinking juvenile justice by Elizabeth S Scott( Book )

11 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 926 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What should we do with teenagers who commit crimes? Are they children whose offenses are the result of immaturity and circumstances, or are they in fact criminals? "Adult time for adult crime" has been the justice system's mantra for the last twenty years. But locking up so many young people puts a strain on state budgets, and ironically, the evidence suggests it ultimately increases crime. In this book, two leading scholars in law and adolescent development offer a comprehensive and pragmatic way forward. They argue that juvenile justice should be grounded in the best available psychological science, which shows that adolescence is a distinctive state of cognitive and emotional development. Although adolescents are not children, they are also not fully responsible adults. They offer a new approach to juvenile justice, based on their exploration of research not available when the punitive laws now in effect were enacted and on their review of current legal standards

You and your adolescent : the essential guide for ages 10-25 by Laurence D Steinberg( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 244 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Relax! The horror stories you have heard about adolescence are false." This is Dr. Laurence Steinberg's reassuring message to parents in this newly revised edition of his classic book "You and Your Adolescent," which "Publishers Weekly "says is "filled with solid advice for the parents of adolescents." Among the new topics in this updated edition: * An expanded definition of adolescence to age 25, recognizing that college graduates often remain dependent on their parents for an extended period, creating a new parent-child dynamic * A discussion of social media that addresses whether parents of preteens and young teens should monitor use of these new communication tools * What new research into the adolescent brain tells us about teenage behavior As Dr. Steinberg writes, "Most books written for parents of teenagers were survival guides (many still are). Nowadays, adolescence is too long--15 years in some families--for mere survival. Knowledge, not fortitude, is what today's parents need. That's where this book comes in."
