The Physiological and Psychological Development of the Adolescent
Middle schoolers examine the life of a teenager from their own perspective and an adult's. In groups, they focus on the biological changes and how they are different in a girl and a boy. Individually, they write a paper about these changes and include characteristics that relate to their personality and identity. To end the instructional activity, they are introduced to Kohlberg's theory of Moral Reasoning and Piaget's theory of Cognitive Development.
