About Adolescence in Context

From award-winning author Tara L. Kuther comes Adolescence in Context, a topically oriented text that connects learners to the science that shapes our understanding of today's teenagers and young adults. The book is organized around three core themes: the centrality of context, the importance of research, and the applied value of developmental science. The text presents classic research, current research, and foundational theories, which Kuther frames in real-life contexts such as gender, race and ethnicity, and socioeconomic status. Students will come away with an understanding of the book’s themes and material that they will immediately be able to apply to their own lives and future careers.

KEY FEATURES OF
ADOLESCENCE IN CONTEXT

  • Lives in Context video cases through the SAGE Vantage digital option of the text build on the contextual examples that the author includes in the text, looking at the ways in which biological, cultural, community, family, racial / ethnic, and socioeconomic factors influence development. The videos include interviews, and observational studies that show children performing tasks at various stages of development.
  • Learning pedagogy drawn from The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) helps students master concepts and remedy gaps in understanding.
    • Review items assess the lower levels of Bloom’s taxonomy: recalling and explaining concepts.
    • Thinking in Context items ask students to consider the role of context in the topic as well as reflect on their experience; these are organized to assess the higher levels of Bloom’s taxonomy: apply, analyze, and evaluate.
    • Apply items typically provide a short scenario involving adolescents and ask readers to provide insight and solve a problem.
  • Embedded intersectional influences coverage examines the ways in which constructs of race, gender, socioeconomic level, and other variables interact and influence development.
  • Chapter-opening learning objectives, end-of-chapter summaries, and end-of-chapter review questions that return to learning objectives recap the key concepts presented in the chapter.
