I think the idea of a modified Choice room for middle school kids is
intriguing--I'm going into my second year of 6th,7th, and 8th graders
bunch of years at the elementary school and was really thinking about
changes to the way I did things this past year.>>
Even though we are still growing in the Middle School department, I
would invite you (if you have not already) to join the TAB listserv as
there are other middle school teachers there and they (Cynthia
especially!) have been very good at encouraging each other. One of our
members has a great middle school web log also.
Also check out knowledgeloom.org/tab: Lindsey Harden's middle school
story is a good one too.
Some choice/modified choice issues are specific to middle school; other
discussions have validity across the educational spectrum. Take a look!
