ABSTRACT
The article discusses the challenges in designing curricular experiences that promote young adolescents' cognitive growth. One of these challenges is helping young adolescents transition from concrete to the formal operational stage of cognitive development during the middle school years. The approach taken by middle school teachers at Radnor Middle School in Pennsylvania in meeting the state curricular standards while simultaneously engaging young adolescents in student-oriented curricula that encourage growth toward formal operational thought and processing is described.
