The Hidden Lives of Middle Schoolers
Shreve, Jenn
Instructor, v115 n1 p37-39 Aug 2005
Bullying, drug use, sex--curious about whether or not these news-making trends describe a teacher's middle school students? And if so, how do they affect the classroom? This article presents an interview with Linda Perlstein, a reporter who spent a year attending classes at Wilde Lake Middle School in Maryland to find out what really is going on in the minds of middle schoolers. Perlstein witnessed a side of middle school that teachers rarely get to see. In an interview, Perlstein offers some fresh insights on teaching, respect, and life inside middle school.
