Summary

Becoming A Middle Level Teacher outlines an approach to student focused instruction that can provide greater academic success for the most students, and at the same time, assist early adolescents in navigating the difficult transition of puberty. The text revolves around four recurring themes: -A critical link exists between developmental needs and learning. -Relationships are key to motivation, which is key to learning. -Middle school students are entitled to be involved in decisions that affect their learning. -Implementing student focused instruction is both challenging and rewarding for teachers. With over 50 successful learning activities in language arts, social studies, science, math, art, music, and physical education from 20 practicing middle school teachers, the text is rich with examples of actual programs and practices from several outstanding middle schools.
