A richly textured picture of the world of middle-school students. It describes who these students are, explains why fostering their voice is important, and discusses the creation of a community of literacy partners. It addresses topics related to technology, reading, writing, research, use of the arts, community, and assessment. The voices of thirty remarkable middle-school teachers focus on such important issues as recognizing the impact of social media; the effect of the internet on research; the need for critical literacy; and the potential of the school library.
