Abstract

International research about the health and well-being of middle grades youth has received heightened attention by teachers, administrators, policymakers, and researchers who recognize that students’ health and social and emotional well-being directly impacts their academic progress. Nevertheless, middle grades leaders and teachers have had insufficient access to research findings or evidence-based resources that focus explicitly on young adolescents’ health and well-being in ways that support the planning and teaching of curriculum and support those working with this age-group. This paper highlights the presentations that were included in a research-based symposium that described and explained research around aspects that empower school leaders, teachers, academics, and teacher candidates to successfully develop an understanding of the health and well-being of young adolescent learners. The collective aim of these presentations was to provide empirical evidence around the information and tools necessary to address the health and well-being needs of young adolescent learners.
