In the Middle: Writing, Reading, and Learning with Adolescents
reviewed on + 260 more book reviews
Helpful Score: 1


In the Middle is a story about Nancie Atwell and her eighth grade students in Boothbay Harbor, Maine- about what she and they have learned together as collaborating writing and readers, and about what goes on in one classroom where instruction has been transformed by a teacher concerned enough to question her own assumptions about teaching. It is also a book about adolescents themselves- how they learn, what they beieve and value, and what we can learn from and about them.
