“If we don’t help kids develop the narrative, they’ll develop their own.”
Dr. Liz Angoff, my guest from episode 181, is back to share more about engaging adolescents in the evaluation process. Liz’s model of giving feedback to kids has evolved into four clear components. Today, we touch on each of the components but spend most of our time on the idea of creating shared language with teens during testing. Here are a few other topics that we cover:
- Differences between kids and adolescents when it comes to testing
- Helping adolescents get curious about their own evaluation
- How to work with very reticent adolescents
- Structuring feedback with adolescents
