Product Description

How can youth workers help junior highers navigate the quirky waters of early adolescence--the depths and hidden shoals of physical, social, cognitive, and spiritual change? By charting a course using Mark Oestreicher's concise, easy-to-use book for church youth workers. Offering short, helpful concepts and filled with quotes and tips, here is a primer for understanding young teenagers and teaching them with methods and programs that fit them. From developmental issues to humorously horrifying tales from the trenches, junior high ministry is thoughtfully unfolded in this destined-to-be-much-thumbed-through book.

Publisher's Description

To Be a Junior High Youth Worker . . . takes a distinct kind of adult, just as junior highers are a distinct kind of people. Betwixt and between though they may be, early adolescents are as capable of a genuine spiritual understanding and growth as high schoolers. It’s just that junior highers absorb Bible teaching and demonstrate their spirituality—well, differently. Help! I’m a Junior High Youth Worker! is your primer for understanding young teenagers, then teaching them with a mind-set and with methods that fit them. First Things First. Three axioms that define your territory as a junior high youth worker. So Just What Is a Junior Higher, Anyway? The essence of early adolescence: the need for appropriate rules . . . the dilemma of throwing sixth graders and eighth graders together in the same program . . . small is good. Developmentally Speaking. Changes junior highers enjoy and endure cognitively, emotionally, socially, spiritually . . . their changing relationships with parents . . . individuation and hair under their arms. Time to Teach! Your required dose of pedagogy: the case for fun learning . . . ten top teaching topics for middle school ministry . . . how simulations, role plays, and storytelling can be your best teaching methods for early adolescents. Faith Outside the Youth Room. Spiritual discipleship for middle schoolers: they don’t have to be high schoolers to begin forming habits of prayers, service, and outreach. Help! I’m a Junior High Youth Worker! is help at hand surviving and thriving in ministry to early adolescents.

    It was okay but not really helpful in the areas I needed help. It was like just a chip of the ice berg. There are so many issues troubling our young people today and I expected more help dealing with those.
