Learning Contexts Beyond the Classroom: Extracurricular Activities, Community Organizations, and Peer Groups


by B. Bradford Brown & Wendy Theobald — 1998

In this chapter we will examine three social contexts beyond the classroom that are part of or closely connected to the school as a social institution and that affect adolescents' school achievement as well as their broader development. These are (1) school-sponsored "extracurricular" activities, (2) community-based youth organizations, and (3) the informal world of peers for which secondary school is often the locus of organization and activity.
