A volume in The Handbook of Research in Middle Level Education series
(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.
