I came across this posting from Laura. Clearly, someone doesn’t understand what middle school is all about. The author uses “middle school” and “junior high” interchangably. I’m not sure if it the difference was ever communicated to Laura. But it does lead to the discussion, just what should middle school be? Maybe this would be a good topic for us to start a discussion about. What do you think?

We’re looking for some input from other middle school educators. Currently, we are putting together a “wish list” of topics that middle school educators are interested in. We’ll be putting together a podcast and once things get going, we’ll be able to respond to issues as they arise. However, you could play an important role in establishing the feel and structure of the podcast. Just drop us a short (or long) email if there is anything that you would be interested in hearing or discussing about middle school. You can drop us a line at Middle School Musings.
Currently we are in big discussions over what the format of the podcast should be. Right now, it looks like we’ll begin with a general discussion of the news, an spotlight on a middle school practice and an interview.
If you are a middle school educator, what would you like to hear about? We’re currently open for suggestions. Use the comments section to make your voice heard. Either that or drop us an email at Middle School Musings.
We are three middle school educators who are establishing a podcast about middle school for middle school educators. Currently there are some middle school teachers who have their students doing podcasts, but there isn’t an informative source about Middle School designed for the middle school teacher. That’s what we hope to do. We are currently working through the technical (and time) issues to bring you a useful podcast. Currently, our plan is to be podcasting on a weekly basis by September of 2007. If there are subjects that you would like to see addressed, drop us a line.
