Anxiety in Schools presents current theory and research addressing both context- and content-specific contributions to anxieties experienced in schools. The concept of academic anxiety is a new construct, formed through the content within this book, and is proposed as a unifying representation for various forms of specialized manifestations of anxiety in school settings. With contributions from leaders in their respective fields of academic anxieties, the book provides detailed and thorough explorations of the varied and specific orientations toward anxieties in school settings. Explicit attention is given to the broader construct of academic anxiety and the contextual influences that can be brought to overcome or mitigate the impact of the many academic anxieties encountered by learners.
