If you have a middle schooler, or teach middle schoolers, or care about education, you should read it too.

It’s about a great big FAIL in the middle of the fall.  And what this one wise teacher did when faced with it.

It’s also discussed at Motherlode, where the most awesome KJ Dellantonia is ripping it up this week.

Thank you, Launa. It’s been a heady week, as I started a new blogging job for the Core Knowledge Foundation AND had this story about me pop up the next day! I am feeling grateful and overwhelmed. Thank you so much for your kind words; any teacher will tell you that we are starved for positive feedback. We are practically slathering, obsequious fools when it comes to positive press of any sort! I also thought you’d like this: http://modelsbydesign.wordpress.com/2011/10/27/is-b-the-new-f/.
