Introduction to Middle School, 2nd Edition
By Sara D. Powell

Description

This fresh, reader-friendly text presents a comprehensive introduction to the children, the choices, and the challenges of teaching middle school. Writing in the first person, the author, an experienced middle school teacher, examines the full range of middle school topics, from the development and diversity of middle school learners, to the structures, curriculum, and environment of the school itself.

 

Engaging vignettes and photos of teachers and students bring topics to life, while student work samples, case studies, and articles on MyEducationLab link to topics within each chapter. Boxed NMSA performance standards relate to each chapter's content and videos, and Professional Practice features in all chapters involve scenarios from the lives of teachers and students, followed by multiple choice and constructed response opportunities that mirror Praxis II exams. Introduction to Middle School offers a comprehensive body of knowledge that emphasizes academic rigor while speaking to pre-service teachers in a voice that invites new teachers into this field.
