Here's just one quick article during this busy time of year.

The May edition of ASCD has an article on what teens say they are hoping for in school. The sample size was small, but you can read through the article for the researcher's findings. Her conclusions fall into five main categories:
  1. Teens want explicit proof that the adults in their lives know them as individuals.
  2. Teens want easily accessible resources.
  3. Teens demand authentic, meaningful work.
  4. Teenagers crave human interaction.
  5. Teens want the opportunity to fail.
