Adolescence also employs unique pedagogy to ensure students practice active learning and deep processing, focus on the practical applications of what they are studying, think critically and become educated consumers of the research Two overarching themes are explored throughout this text:1. Adolescent development involves individual, social and cultural systems.2. Positive adolescent development is the norm, though the media and research frequently concentrate on adolescent problems. *Starting spring 2010, MyVirtualTeen will be included within MyDevelopmentKit for this book.
