Research-driven coverage offers a thorough presentation of the theory of middle school teaching, plus a wealth of real stories from real classrooms that demonstrate strategies in actual practice. KEY TOPICS The authors address the current emphasis on standards, discussing their advantages and disadvantages and integrating them throughout; embrace the notion of inclusion by offering numerous suggestions for teaching special-needs students in the regular classroom; and explore the social and cultural complexities—and the joys and challenges—of teaching today's adolescents. For teachers and future teachers of middle school.
