Product Overview

Development, Learning, and Community uses data drawn from a study of pluralistic Jewish high schools to illustrate the complex and often challenging interplay between the cognitive and socio-aff ective elements of education. Throughout, Kress grapples with questions such as: How can the balance between community cohesion and group diff erences be achieved in diverse settings? What are the educational implications of an approach to identity development rooted in contemporary developmental theories that posit the interaction among cognition, aff ect, and behavior? How can the a??formala?? and a??informala?? off erings of a school coalesce to address these broadly conceived identity outcomes, and what are the challenges in doing so?
