Teaching Out Loud: A Middle Grades Diary from MiddleWeb.
This book presents an eighth grade science teacher's diary. For 36 weeks during the 1998-99 school year, this middle school teacher explored her teaching life on the World Wide Web. Each week, hundreds of visitors to MiddleWeb followed the ups and downs of her professional journey, experiencing her enthusiasm at the opening of school, watching as she raised difficult issues before her Critical Friends Group and as she questioned the effectiveness of her own teaching, sharing her grief and puzzlement over the Columbine tragedy, and following her as the school year drew to a close.
