520 1  "This volume a first-ever effort, will broaden our 
       understanding of middle grades schooling internationally 
       by critically examining the education of young adolescents
       in 14 different countries. Rather than focusing on 
       international competition and the comparative educational 
       ranking of the United States, this volume provides 
       information on how young adolescents are taught and how 
       middle grades are organized in countries around the world.
       In addition, the educational successes and failures 
       evident in the education of 10- to 15-year-olds, the 
       indictments and praises that have been offered by 
       supporters and critics alike, and the research that has 
       been generated in these countries about educating young 
       adolescents is addressed. 
520 8  In order to facilitate a comparative analysis across these
       countries, each of the 14 chapters addresses a common set 
       of guiding questions. An International Look at Educating 
       Young Adolescents offers, for the first time, material 
       that will permit more fruitful discussions about the 
       status of the middle school movement worldwide."--Jacket. 
520    (Sponsored by the Middle Level Education Research Special 
       Interest Group and the National Middle School Association)
       Studies like the Third International Mathematics and 
       Science Study (TIMSS) have compared the performance of 
       U.S. middle grade students (i.e., eighth graders) to those
       in other countries. In relation to middle grade schools, 
       20 countries outperformed the United States in mathematics
       and nine countries scored above the U.S. in science. The 
       intent of this volume of The Handbook of Research in 
       Middle Level Education, An International Look at Educating
       Young Adolescents, is to broaden our understanding of 
       middle grade schooling by critically examining the 
       education of young adolescents (ages 10-15, typically 
       grades 6-8) through an international lens. In addition to 
       looking at how schooling and students are organized for 
       teaching and learning, this handbook will focus on the 
       successes and failures that are evident in a wide variety 
       of nations, present the indictments and praises that have 
       been offered by supporters and critics alike, and review 
       the research that has been generated about educating young
       adolescents in an effort to cross national boundaries. 
       Ultimately, this volume of the handbook series will 
       explore what international perspectives teach us about the
       effective education of young adolescents.
