Social/Emotional Development in Early Adolescence

February 26 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

This session will discuss the typical emotional, neurological, and physical development paths of children ages 10-14 and the ways they impact education. This session will place challenging early adolescent behaviors into developmental context. We will take a strengths-based approach to identify ways to channel students’ tendencies into opportunities for growth.

In addition to lecture and video, this session will use small-group discussion, role-playing, and reflection on our own experiences as adolescents. We will work together to identify ways to provide a challenging age group with the most supportive learning environment possible.

By attending this session, attendees will leave with:

  • Deeper understanding of the intersecting developmental tasks of early adolescence
  • A clearer understanding of why early adolescents engage in behaviors that can be challenging for adults
  • Ideas for strategies to implement with students
