Summary: As any teacher or parent knows, adolescence is a time when youth grapple with the question, "Who am I?" The answers don't always come easily. Issues of race, ethnicity, class, gender, sexual orientation, and ability often complicate this question for youth, affecting their schoolwork and their relationships with teachers, administrators, and peers.

Adolescents at School gives educators, administrators, community leaders, counselors, social worker mores, health-care professionals, and parents a glimpse into the complex "identities" adolesxents negotiate as they manage the challenges of school. The book contains the perspectives of teachers, researchers, and administrators--and adolescents themselves--who explore what it means to be a middle or high school student in the United States today. Practical and jargon-free, the book suggests ways to foster the success of every student in our schools and classrooms. Contributors include Pedro Noguera, Beverly Daniel Tatum, Stacey Lee, Michael Kimmel, Ellen Brantlinger, and Sonia Nieto. less
