Description

“If we don’t help kids develop the narrative, they’ll develop their own.”

For this course, Dr. Liz Angoff sits down with Dr. Jeremy Sharp of The Testing Psychologist, to discuss strategies to engage adolescents in the evaluation process. Dr. Angoff’s model of giving feedback to kids has evolved into four clear components. In this discussion, they touch on each of the components, but spend most of their time on the idea of creating a shared language with teens during testing. Here are a few other areas that they 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
