October is the Month of the Young Adolescent, but July 6-11 is the week of the annual Middle Level Education Institute at the University of Maine where more than 200 teachers and national experts will spend the week learning and sharing the latest research, theory and practice about what works best for youngsters between the ages of 10 and 15.
The goal of the Month of the Young Adolescent, a new initiative of the National Middle School Association (NMSA), is to increase public understanding of the unique developmental needs and characteristics of children in this age group who are experiencing the most drastic physical, personal, emotional and social changes of the life span.
