Middle Schoolin' might be of interest to the staff and students of your
education program. Frank holds a bachelor's degree in English and a
master's in education. Paul possesses a bachelor's in electrical

Our book contains fifty short stories about the challenges, humor
and rewards of teaching, based on our interactions with students,
parents, administrators, and other teachers. This book could be
added to your reading materials in your
secondary education methods
courses. Some great discussions and alternatives to handling certain
classroom situations can emerge from reading Middle Schoolin’,
hence its value in teachers' reading groups.
Our book now offers 250 questions for education students to reflect
on, discuss, and or answer. This is a perfect lesson plan for you!
The questions may also be used to give quizzes or tests! Middle Schoolin’ would make an excellent addition to your syllabus.
There are five thought-provoking questions for each
chapter. These questions are designed to stimulate discussion and
for teachers to reflect on their own philosophies of education and
teaching practices. The questions promote higher level thinking and
include references to the works of: Freud, Piaget, Skinner, Vygotsky,
Dewey, Freire, etc. and theories such as: constructivism,
cognitivism, humanism, behaviorism, etc.
Our book has gotten lots of positive reviews from our colleagues as
well as from many education professors for being reader-friendly.
The book can easily be read a chapter a day or in one or two
sessions if one chooses. For a sample of our questions please visit
our website at
We would greatly appreciate it if you would forward this information
to a colleague, friend or anyone who can use it.
