Being Normal is the Only Way to be: Adolescent Perspectives on Gender and School
A book for teachers and parents of adolescents. It is colorful, absorbing, illuminating, and—critically—practical. Each chapter draws on the perceptions and writings of teenage boys and girls, and uses these to build a specific knowledge about what it means to be an adolescent at school, what it means to be ‘cool’ and ‘normal’, and the effects of these social constructions on learning and relationships.
