Adolescent Success welcomes submissions for journal inclusion that reflect the aims of the Association and address issues relevant to the middle years of schooling.

Possible topics include: 

  • the developmental needs and interests of young adolescents

  • varied approaches to teaching and learning integrated curriculum
  • authentic assessment
  • school leadership and organisational structures in the middle years
  • information and communication technologies and resources in the middle years
  • research findings and future developments in the middle years

Below are refereed articles from previous Australian Journals of Middle Schooling.

You can use these articles to:

  • share with your school staff as a professional reading for discussion at your next staff meeting
  • share with your parent community as a way of highlighting the importance of the middle years
