Adolescence - Text Only - 04 edition

Adolescence - Text Only (ISBN10: 039590823X; ISBN13: 9780395908235)

Summary: By incorporating current research, historical information, and analysis, author Paul Kaplan presents multiple perspectives on the issues surrounding adolescence in order to give students a more complete picture of topics and debates. Based around five key themes--adolescence is a time of choices; it is shaped by context and influenced by group membership; the adolescent experience has changed over the last 50 years; and current views of adolescence are becoming more ...show morebalanced--in-text discussion not only covers the problems and challenges adolescents face, but also the positive adjustments and coping mechanisms they use. Readers are encouraged to discuss these and other issues and consider their own opinions.

The text includes a number of pedagogical aids in order to better educate students, uphold the multiple perspective approach, and ensure that students evaluate their own views. What Is Your Opinion? surveys open each chapter and engage students' interest by challenging them to express preconceptions about the topic and Has Your Opinion Changed? features revisit these surveys and help students reevaluate their beliefs after they've learned more. In addition, Perspective boxes in each chapter present a situation an adolescent faces, such as dating an older person or experimenting with drugs, and his or her perspective; then the issue is stated from an alternative point of view. Students must then use material from the chapter, personal experience, or both to answer questions, analyze the situation, and state what they believe to be the best outcome.

An overall integrated learning system helps students focus on the key material in each chapter:

  • A Focus box in each chapter covers an applied issue or area of concern in depth, such as cults, gangs, the Self in different cultures, partner violence, and the question of parental notification for abortion.
  • The marginal glossary provides definitions of key terms at the point of use.
  • At-a-Glance charts provide visual summaries after each section, highlighting key topics and points. The major points of the chapter are summarized, with key terms, at the end of the chapter.
  • Placing... in Perspective presents each chapter's main area of study, such as self-concept and identity, in the broader context of adolescence so that readers understand how the chapter fits into the overall picture.
  • A Themes box at the end of every chapter summarizes material as it relates to the five key themes.
  • An appendix provides two levels of review questions for each chapter, one multiple choice, the other essay-type.
