About this Unit
From 2020 students should note that core units are now taught in semesters rather than half yearly sessions.This unit examines research and contemporary classroom practice relevant to the cognitive, physiological, and social/affective needs of adolescents to highlight the reciprocal effects that teaching has on adolescence and how in turn adolescence affects teaching practice. Emphasis is placed on the use of evidenced-based literature in examining adolescent-centred challenges to teaching and learning. Topics addressed include: definitions of adolescence past, present and future, biological and cognitive milestones of adolescence, adolescents at-risk, secondary schooling fostering educational and general resilience in adolescents, and helping adolescents thrive.
