Middle School Learners (5-8)

Middle School Learners (Grades 5-8)

Middle School Learners are typically between the ages of 10-14. At this stage of development, they are beginning to grasp abstract concepts. Their different learning styles become more prominent as well as their need to be more social. Here are resources to engage Middle School Learners.

Back to School Planning Guide

Back to School Planning Guide

New school year, new classroom adventures, new sets of challenges! To meet them it takes planning, experimentation and a good sense of humor. Our Back to School Planning Guide is designed to address at least two parts of that list.

We've culled links to recommended sites that help with classroom planning and first day of school activities and suggest new technologies to try.

We hope you find this helpful. Have a wonderful school year!

Facilitator's Guides

Facilitator guides support the delivery of instruction by highlighting key concepts from the resource materials. In addition, they provide facilitators with suggested discussion questions and sample responses that may potentially be shared by training participants. The guide provides a suggested template for the order of module activities, however facilitators are encouraged to use their professional judgment based on the dynamics of their participant group.
