Some good ideas, especially for those who might be new to teaching middle school. The book is 17 years old now and could certainly use an update, though.

Wormeli is hilarious and I would love to see him in action. I think the trick with this work is adapting his suggestions in a way that works for you as an instructor. I think his basic arguments are well-founded and critical ones for teachers to consider in honing their craft.

Excellent for anyone working at the middle school level. Wormelli provides a good overview of the energy level of the students and practical ideas to implement. Middle school teaching is not for the weak of heart!

Rick Wormeli's Meet Me in the Middle: Becoming an Accomplished Middle School Level Teacher was read for EDU 262 Middle Level Education.

I read the following chapters for my class: 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 8, 13, and 15.

Once again, seemed to me that what is practiced on paper is not what is realistic in the classroom…Very funny personal experience stories, however, also somewhat delusional!

Good read. A little dated compared to Wormeli's more recent writings, but good content and questions/ideas for middle level educators.

A good overview of middle school teaching and gave lots of food for thought.

Good for someone entering their first few years of teaching or a refresher.

A broad approach to middle school teaching. It being my vacation, the fiction books were calling and I set this aside. It would be good to read before an interview though.
