The third edition of this perennial best seller is without a doubt the best resource available to help middle level educators renew their understanding of young adolescents and how schools can apply that understanding to the classroom. With new research and data to support its realistic treatment of ways schools can promote harmony and increase student learning, this publication offers a fresh perspective on what is the heart and soul of middle level education.

The chapter on intellectual development has been expanded to include recent research findings on brain development as well as attention to the importance of emotional development. The all new and particularly pertinent chapter on social, personal, and moral development also includes a treatment on the impact of media and new technologies on young adolescents daily lives. Promoting Harmony is a fresh, common sense presentation of what we know about learning and young adolescents, punctuated by vignettes of practices that illustrate harmony or disharmony. It makes an excellent text for preservice teachers or for an engaging and meaningful school-based professional development experience.

Review Text

  • By Mark K. Wickersham on September 26, 2011

    Promoting Harmony: Young Adolescent Development & Classroom Practices is another book that I read for an admin class I am taking through CIU. This third edition was published over two years ago by the Association for Middle Level Education (formerly known as the National Middle School Association). The 110-page book only has five chapters and is a quick read. Chapter titles include Moments of Harmony: Relationships as the Essence of Good Teaching, Intellectual and Emotional Development, Physical and Sexual Development, Social, Personal, and Moral Development, and Promoting Harmony in Middle Level Classrooms. Student interviews are found in the first four chapters, and I found them to be perhaps the best part of the book. A few small black and white pictures are sprinkled throughout the book. Although Promoting Harmony was not an exciting read, it did assist me in making a few improvements to a Sixth Grade Parent Night presentation that I make at the start of every school year. I do have to mention that I find the cover to be absolutely hilarious. The kids look like they belong in high school or even college. What up wit' dat?!

    I had to get this for one of my graduate classes and I actually didn't mind reading it. It read more like a book instead of a textbook and I liked the story vignettes in it.

    I am getting certified in Middle School Curriculum for my credentials. My professor assigned this book to us. It was an easy read with poignant points. It was very helpful that it also provided student commentary.

    Quick read, well written. It sounded cheesy and sappy but stresses the importance of immersion and flow. I think this is one of the more useful books I have read.
