While all teenage behavior and character traits can be challenging, the issues facing the at-risk teenager are particularly thorny and deserve special attention. Anger, aggression, and a total lack of good decision-making happen on a minute-to-minute basis, as teachers patiently try to guide these young adults. Unlocking the key to keeping them in school and facilitating proficiency in reading, writing, and math is not for the weak of heart. A strong constitution, compassionate spirit, and solid knowledge base make the difference in this meaningful work. Neuroscientists now have the technology to make amazing and startling discoveries about this unexplored territory. Combining their work with the work of psychologists and educationists is creating a new and exciting landscape for educators. In Teaching the At-Risk Teenage Brain Sheryl Feinstein provides research in a reader-friendly way to help teachers and administrators better understand the at-risk student. Feinstein also includes numerous brain-compatible instructional strategies and classroom management techniques, all intended to teach, support, and guide at-risk teenage students.

Teaching the At-Risk Teenage Brain is a practical resource for any teacher or parent dealing with middle school through high school-aged adolescents. The author clearly has a handle on how the teenage brain works and shares many vivid examples of how to decelerate potentially volatile classroom management problems. Current research on the biological make-up of the adolescent brain is blended with many helpful instructional strategies to keep teens focused, secure, and challenged to learn!--Laurie Materna, Ph.D., RN, nursing professor, Milwaukee Area Technical College
