Meyer, Richard
Voices from the Middle, v18 n4 p21-30 May 2011
The first part of this article is a discussion of the present contexts in which middle level teachers, students, and researchers learn and teach; it's a rather dismal portrait constrained by legislation and policies. The second part, in which hope begins to present itself, introduces readers to some middle level students, their teacher, and a researcher who are working to (re)claim the reading and writing voices of the students. The final section is an introduction to five potential actions that could include the voices and actions of middle level students, their teachers, researchers, and others concerned with a progressive education agenda.
