Review: MiddleWeb

I first came across MiddleWeb today - I am just delving into the resource but I believe it is worthy to pass along to my followers. If you are a middle school teacher it is highly possible you have already ventured to their site and their resource. As a middle school teacher it is important to consistently seek improving our craft - learning to make our classes better. I am hoping that MiddleWeb will provide resources to help my classroom improve. I will update further about the website after a trial period. But the site looks extremely promising and I would recommend checking it out from my quick review.

Their site includes this description and explanation:

"MiddleWeb is all about the middle grades with a sharp focus on teaching & learning in grades 4-8. Since 1996, we’ve been providing resources for teachers, school leaders, parents and others interested in the success of young adolescents. 

In 2012, we’ve completely redesigned our website around four streams of original content:
• Resource Roundups: We’ve always specialized in finding and sharing resources you can use. Here at our new site, we feature regular “resource roundups” — our tag for short, link-laden essays built around a theme. Browse here or search for keywords.
• Guest Posts: Just what you might expect…first-person articles. We bring you the voices of middle grades education stars and many lesser known teachers and school leaders up on the front lines who have stories to tell and good practice to share. If you’d like to write for us, check out our editorial guidelines.
• Book Reviews: Back in MiddleWeb’s early days, we featured reviews of professional books of interest to educators working in the middle. We’re reviving that tradition and we’ve made arrangements with many education publishers to share review copies with us. If you’re interested in becoming a MiddleWeb reviewer, let us know. We’ll share a list of what’s available and some basic guidelines for review writing. You pick what you’d like to read, write the review, keep the book. We publish your reviews, make you famous.
• Interviews: We’re talking with interesting people who have expertise around middle grades education — or just do great things for middle grades kids and schools. Peruse our Five Q Interviews for ideas, insights, and plain good chat."

Check out MiddleWeb to learn more - and hopefully discover a great resource.
