A collection of materials for middle school teachers, teacher leaders, teams, and administrators.
At Lesley University, we are part of a collaborative movement to expand effective practices. This site shares work that our faculty members, middle school teachers who study at Lesley, and those practicing to be middle school teachers have created. Former Lesley University students and teachers from across the country have generously provided the materials. In addition, we want to share our vision of exemplary middle school education in the 21st century, structures that are effective for all children. Any of these resources can be copied and used as long as you reference that they came from this site.Use the links to the left to find effective practices, tools for inquiry-based learning, thematic service learning mini-units, and service work for project-based learning. Our mini-units integrate science, language arts, math, social studies, technology, arts, music, media, study skills and habits of mind around both a meaningful theme and a service-learning unit in the community.
