A student's experience in the middle grades is a selection of classes they go through in a day. If they experience inconsistent expectations across those classes, they and the school will struggle to achieve high outcomes. Middle grade students need to have common behavioral and academic expectations, recognitions, and consequences throughout the school day in all their classes. This report provides questions answered by Dr. Balfanz on what school leaders might ask while providing instructional leadership, observing classrooms, and working with teachers.. [A list of resources is included.]
