Teachers can contribute enormously to the lives of adolescents, but that contribution is not easy to make. Adolescence has long been recognized as a period of heightened risk-taking and accordingly, a stage that requires special oversight from adults. School plays a major part in the psychosocial, intellectual, and vocational development of adolescents. Teachers, curricula, school activities, and school culture all provide raw materials that contribute to the adolescent’s growing sense of self and increasing base of knowledge and skill.This course on understanding adolescence provides an overview about all the changes that happen during the phase of adolescence and also provides the knowledge on how these adolescent issues need to be handled. By undertaking this course the students who are aspiring to be the teachers of tomorrow will be better prepared to deal with the difficulties that they will face while dealing with the adolescent kids and the difficulties that they are going through.
