CCE Brown Bag: “Why Is Middle School So Hard?,” Friday, Feb 24 (E)

The Bonner Center for Civic Engagement (CCE) invites you to join us for this week’s Brown Bag Discussion Friday, February 24: “Why Is Middle School So Hard?” At this Brown Bag, Dr. Catherine Bagwell, associate professor, psychology, will present on a few main topics that characterize adolescence as a key developmental stage including peer relationships and friendships, identity development, and some recent evidence from brain imaging studies. Then, two representatives from Richmond Public Schools, the Executive Director of Secondary Education and a middle school principal will respond with everyday examples that they encounter within the schools.

CCE Brown Bags are held on Fridays from 12:30-1:25 p.m. This week’s Brown Bag will be held in Commons 331. Free pizza is provided at all CCE Brown Bags. Please bring your own drink.
