This American Life: Middle School

A month ago (? maybe more) a good friend and fellow middle school teacher sent me the link to an episode of This American Life that was all about Middle School.  Andrew listens to This American Life regularly and had mentioned this episode, so with a second recommendation, and the subject matter, I knew I would have to make time to catch this episode.

And I'm glad I did (even if it took me a month before I found time to listen to it and 2 more weeks before I found time to write about it).  It was perfect.  It was moving and funny and insightful.  I saw so many of my students in the students interviewed and followed in the episode.  If you come in contact with middle schoolers in anyway, you should have a listen.
