Welcome to the Companion Website
From award-winning author Tara L. Kuther comes Adolescence in Context, a topically oriented text that connects learners to the science that shapes our understanding of today's teenagers and young adults. The book is organized around three core themes: the centrality of context, the importance of research, and the applied value of developmental science. The text presents classic research, current research, and foundational theories, which Kuther frames in real-life contexts such as gender, race and ethnicity, and socioeconomic status. Students will come away with an understanding of the book’s themes and material that they will immediately be able to apply to their own lives and future careers.
