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.

Tweenteacher Book Title Contest

Heather Wolpert-Gawron Middle School teacher by day, Tweenteacher by night

Hey fellow Edutopians!

It's your moderator here. I am hoping that the power of social media can help a gal out. I’m in the need of a catchy title for my new book that is due out in early 2011. The working title is Tips for Tweenteachers, but it just doesn’t light my fire, nor has is resonated with early reviewers. It reflects what the book is about, but not my voice.

So here’s the deal. If you can help out and come up with a title that my publisher selects, he will send you a free copy of my book when it’s published as well as two more titles of your choice from the Eye On Education library.

The only guidance I have for you is that my publisher wants the word "tween" to remain in the title somehow. I've been thinking about what makes teaching tweens so unique, challenging, and fun, but everything's still falling flat in my mind. Maybe it's just a little fried as the homestretch on this project looms on the horizon.

So please lend your own expertise to the brainstorm. I could use the help, since my wall already has a head-sized hole in it from where I’ve been banging my noggin for the last few months trying to solve this problem.

Just leave any suggestions here, and I’ll get back to you if your title is selected. Thanks so much for your help!

Sincerely,

Heather Wolpert-Gawron
