Teaching middle school is not for the faint of heart. But if you're called to do it, you know there's nothing else quite like it. Join us in discussing what works - and what doesn't.

Must-see websites?

Kathy Baron Edutopia reporter and editor, mother of two.

Hi all. I'm compiling a list of the education sites that you go to every day when you log on -- the go-to place for lesson plans, curriculum ideas, a quick grabs for those national holidays that catch us all off guard, or the 100th anniversary of such and such. Thanks for your help.

I have been a MS principal for 20+ years and also an adjunct instructor of Middle School Concepts and Intro Ed classes at the college level. I also offer online book studies featuring books by Rick Wormeli. Great PD for educators at very reasonable rates. Free "Kindle" for groups. Visit my website at www.mcqualityeducserv.com

For math we can't help but recommend our site www.tenmarks.com/teachers - FREE math practice program for teachers where they can:-

Each student gets a personalized account with a curriculum that the teacher has chosen, mapped to state standards and customized to their lesson plans. They can practice topics covered in class, complete assignments, or review past concepts to refresh themselves - whenever they want, as much as they want. No limits. They also unlock games and certificates based on their performance to keep them motivated. The teacher account allows the teacher to monitor, assign and review their students work.
