Table of Contents
This ASCD Study Guide is designed to enhance your understanding and application of the information contained in The Power of the Adolescent Brain: Strategies for Teaching Middle and High School Students, an ASCD book written by Thomas Armstrong and published in July 2016.
You can use the study guide after you have read the book or as you finish each chapter. The study questions provided are not meant to cover all aspects of the book but to address specific ideas that might warrant further reflection and prompt you to make connections with your own classroom practice.
Although you can think about many of this guide's questions on your own, we recommend forming a study group with grade-level colleagues who have read (or are reading) The Power of the Adolescent Brain, or using this guide as you read and reflect on the book in a professional learning community (PLC).
