    Hello-
    I was thinking about taking my career to the middle school level. Are there any books you would recommend about either teaching middle school or just middle school kids in general.
    Thanks!

    Consider Dr. John Hattie's work, Visible Learning: A Synthesis of Over 800 Meta-Analyses Relating to Achievement. His book applies to any grade level. Hattie examines teaching methodologies based on thousands of studies. In this read you can compare which methodologies make a big difference in achievement, which are neutral and some that actually reverse achievement.
