50 Stories About the Challenges, Humor, and Rewards of Teaching

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

Middle Schoolin' Read about the challenges, humor, and rewards of teaching, as well as classroom tragedies and successes, that take place in inner city public schools. These 50 vignettes describe human-interest, middle school events. Have you ever feared for your life? Have you ever been accused of something that was not your fault? Have you ever had a conversation with someone and they suddenly say something disrespectful? These scenarios emerge from real-life situations experienced by two Los Angeles middle school teachers. In Middle Schoolin, authors Paul Rallion and Frank Palacio share fifty vignettes garnered from their collective years working with teenage students. Based on interactions with students, parents, and other education professionals, the stories both educate and entertain and include anecdotes that are humorous, sad, tragic, hopeful, uplifting, and thought-provoking. The vignettes reveal the day-to-day challenges that teachers face and the rewards that are often bestowed as a result. From the knife-toting male to the watch-swiping student, and to the late-to-class-again girls, this collection provides a glimpse into the modern-day classroom. Addressing valuable moments in teaching, Middle Schoolin opens the classroom doors to provide an insight into the human element of education. It reinforces the idea that education can transform lives and that todays youth are the worlds greatest resource.
