From Cynthia Gaub:

Currently, there are not that many Middle school teacher/students on
the list doing TAB... AND most middle school kids need more
structure. So I do not have a 'total' choice room, mine is more
modified Choice.

I think the idea of a modified Choice room for middle school kids is so
intriguing--I'm going into my second year of 6th,7th, and 8th graders after a
bunch of years at the elementary school and was really thinking about doing some
changes to the way I did things this past year. But Cynthia's right, you
don't hear much about TAB with the middle school level. Does anyone else do this
and have suggestions about how to begin? I have my kids for nine
weeks--would it work with this time frame? I guess it's just one of those things where
it seems completely overwhelming, so you just don't know where to start. I'm
going to keep researching this--thanks Judy for directing us to Cynthia's site!
