"The transition to middle school is an embryonic moment," says Geoffrey Cohen. "It is a time when kids start to form their identity ... It is a fork in the road in a lot of ways, and a lot of kids end up taking a negative turn." Professor Cohen and J. Parker Goyer studied the effects of middle schoolers writing and exploring their values over a school year.
