  • Preparing Middle Grades Candidates for edTPA in Uncertain Times

    • Authors: Holly H. Pinter et al.
      Abstract: Teacher candidates in North Carolina must earn a passing score on the edTPA assessment to get certified. The middle grades education program at Western Carolina University integrates aspects of the edTPA assessment throughout pre-student teaching coursework and field experiences to prepare candidates for this high-stakes assessment. Some of the edTPA practice assignments serve as key assessments that help the middle grades program faculty evaluate the program and make decisions about curriculum. The pivot to remote and blended learning formats on campus and in partner middle level schools affected the implementation of the edTPA-related assignments. The authors share some of the challenges of implementing edTPA practice portfolios during the pandemic as well as insights gleaned from their assessment of the data.

  • Integrating Social Studies Education with Mathematics: Pre-service
           Teachers’ Use of the Pyramids of Giza to plan a STEM Lesson

    • Authors: Randa Elbih et al.
      Abstract: Pre-service teachers (PSTs) often struggle to teach STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) content effectively due to lack of training on how to plan a STEM lesson in meaningful ways as well as which subjects to integrate. This dilemma often results in an avoidance of STEM methodology altogether. This paper describes a productive method for training PSTs to successfully teach STEM lessons by using Social Studies content to integrate with Mathematics and Science, and provide context and connection to real world applications. Along with providing a STEM lesson, the article demonstrates the critical role social studies can play as the “glue” for some integrated lesson plans.

  • Fostering and Maintaining Relationships: Teacher Education During COVID-19

    • Authors: Jessica VanValkenburgh et al.
      Abstract: This article expounds how our pedagogical practices have changed in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. Many of these effects others have contended with in the education community. The authors share pedagogical strategies they have found to be effective in terms of building and supporting relationships with teacher candidates. They suggest using digitally-mediated teaching and learning strategies, staying connected with students, and badge-based assessment and feedback approaches to build and support relationships with students; examples of the instructional design and implementation strategies are described. The authors propose that when looking forward, teachers at any level may benefit from providing students with an environment in which they feel heard and supported.

  • Home Literacy Initiatives of Middle School Families During the 2020
           Quarantine Period: Transformation in Education'

    • Authors: Elizabeth S. Stewart et al.
      Abstract: The coronavirus pandemic changed everything almost overnight for students and their families. The purpose of this qualitative case study, thus, was to investigate the views of families about the sudden change in education for their middle school children, particularly literacy practices, during the pandemic. Drawing upon Bourdieu’s theoretical framework of cultural capital, coupled with socioeconomic status, funds of knowledge, and crisis management, we conducted interviews with 4 parents. Using the in vivo coding data analysis method, we identified some key preliminary findings: all-day-happy-hour, the strange disconnection between teachers and parents, and soft and hard approaches to school-home literacy. Participants revealed very distinctive dispositions to make this “school-home” education work on their own. These parental dispositions and new meaning-making from their children’s education developed into what we referred to as parentagogy, as they determined for themselves the skills they would need and use to help their children succeed in their new roles as parent and educator. This study confirms the importance of parental value in education.

  • Introduction

    • Authors: Amanda Wall
      Abstract: IntroductionThe articles in this issue of Current Issues in Middle Level Education reflect different experiences of middle level educators particularly as we continue to adapt to new realities given the coronavirus pandemic.Elizabeth Stewart, Jeasik Cho, Mellinee Lesley, and Julie Smit interviewed a small group of parents about their experiences supporting their children’s literacy learning at home in the early weeks of the pandemic in 2020. Their research provides insights and ideas from a parent perspective.As teacher educators, Jessica VanValkenburgh and Aaron R. Gierhart adjusted their practices and approaches to teaching science methods for middle grades and elementary teacher candidates. They share ideas for best practices from their reflection and experiences.In another article focused on teacher education, Randa Elbih, Elyssa Miller, Grace Sheldon, and Mackenzie Wilson share a pedagogical approach as an example of best practices. They explain how they engaged pre-service teachers in planning a STEM-based learning segment by connecting STEM areas with social studies.Finally, Holly Henderson Pinter and David C. Virtue describe how their program has prepared middle grades candidates for the edTPA portfolio assessment in current uncertain times. Their manuscript shares details about changes they made and concludes with lessons learned that readers may be able to apply within their own programs.Continued thanks to Jennifer Gerrald at Georgia Southern University for her support of the journal.

  • Looking Back to Look Forward: an Interview With John Swaim on the Making
           of This We Believe

    • Authors: Nancy B. Ruppert et al.
      Abstract: In the early 1980s, John Swaim was the president of the NMSA Board of Trustees. John Lounsbury, then editor of The Middle School Journal, collaborated with John Swaim and the Board of Trustees to commission the writing of the original document, This We Believe. In the spring of 2020 [Author] contacted John Swaim to tell the story of how This We Believe was conceived. They collaborated using an interview format. The most recent version of The Successful Middle School: This we believe (Bishop & Harrison, 2021) was also recorded with input from leaders in middle level education providing preservice and inservice teachers with tools and inspiration on the best way to respond to the needs of young adolescents. John’s story provides a backdrop for professors to use with preservice teachers to honor and acknowledge the work of those who have come before us, and highlights the power and value of collaboration in support of middle level education.

  • Integrating Mathematics, Science, and Literacy into a Culturally
           Responsive STEM After-School Program

    • Authors: Shelli L. Casler-Failing et al.
      Abstract: This manuscript shares the implementation of an after-school literacy in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) program designed for middle grade students to increase their interest in science and mathematics learning. This program was conducted at our local Boys and Girls Club facilities where students learned about four science topics (renewable energy, water cycle, Newton’s laws, and natural disasters). Students participated in culturally responsive reading and writing activities incorporating culturally relevant books, journal writing, hands-on projects, and a culminating science fair presentation on a topic of their choice. The authors determined that using literature, particularly culturally responsive picture books and graphic novels, to bridge the students’ understanding of scientific and mathematical concepts was an important component of this program. The students’ reactions to the program reflect the importance of offering a variety of avenues for students to represent their understanding and corroborates the significance of after-school programs to provide opportunities for diverse student populations to participate in culturally responsive programs to promote literacy and interest in the STEM disciplines.

  • “A Brave Group of People”: Teacher Candidates’ Perceptions of
           Teaching in Middle School

    • Authors: Bettie Perry et al.
      Abstract: We set out to create a middle grades program and to inform the field about the perceptions of our teacher candidates on teaching middle school. To accomplish these twin goals, we sought to better understand our teacher candidates’ perceptions of teaching middle school and how these perceptions might be changed if necessary. Our review of research included three themes to frame this work: (a) middle school philosophy, (b) motivations to teach, and (c) middle school teacher preparation. We chose an emergent, qualitative research design to cull rich data from diverse stakeholders including open-ended survey data. We found an overarching deficit narrative about middle school students even though teacher candidates expressed admiration for middle school teachers. Our teacher candidates professed a need for coursework on classroom management and adolescent psychology as well as more field experiences to better prepare them for careers in the middle grades. Implications for middle grades programs are discussed including the structure of field experiences and teacher preparation curriculum. We explain specific revisions to our own program in the attempt to generate analytic generalizability.

  • Introduction to the Issue

    • Authors: Amanda Wall
      Abstract: The articles in this issue explore different possibilities for the education of young adolescents. There is one research study, and there are two descriptions. Perry and colleagues wrote about information they collected as they planned to propose a new middle grades program. Teacher candidates’ perceptions about middle grades students and teachers are included. These perceptions informed recommendations for teacher education programs.Casler-Failing and colleagues reported on their collaboration with a local Boys and Girls Club to enhance STEM experiences for young adolescents. The authors selected several topics of instruction to engage young adolescents in hands-on STEM learning with culturally relevant teaching and learning and with strong literacy connections. Multiple examples of tasks, several resources, and recommendations for readers are included.Ruppert and Swaim provide historical context for middle level education. In explaining how the first edition of This We Believe came to be, Swaim noted several key figures and moments in the history of middle level education. We can see how these early leaders in the field came together to forge a vision for middle level education—to see possibilities for the education of young adolescents.Thank you as always to reviewers for their insights and feedback for authors. Special continued thanks to Jennifer Gerrald for her expertise with publishing each issue.Amanda Wall, Editor

  • Field Experiences in the Ether: The Pandemic-induced Realities of Learning
           to Teach

    • Authors: Penny B. Howell et al.
      Abstract: In the United States during March and April of 2020, more than 50 million K-12 students were impacted by school closures with many forced to engage in online learning for continuity in their 2019-2020 school year. This disruption to K-12 public and private schools reverberated in programs of teacher education around the country. As school-university partners, we wanted to provide opportunities for new teacher candidates to be able to engage in some form of interaction with students and veteran teachers. We drew on the structures and strength of our school-university partnership to build our plan to engage in pandemic-induced, alternative field experiences. In this article we describe how one middle level school-university partnership leaned into virtual learning spaces and provided opportunities to help teacher candidates who were beginning their teacher education program conceptualize teaching and learning in new ways. Additionally, we provide classroom teachers’ perspectives of hosting teacher candidates in a virtual learning format offering insights on best practices and challenges to consider.

  • All it Takes is One Click to Join Me on a "Meet": The Positive Impact of
           Technology on Peer Observations in the Virtual Learning Environment

    • Authors: Jamie Silverman
      Abstract: AbstractPhysically stepping foot into the middle and high school classroom is the opportunity teacher candidates (TCs) look most forward to as they enter their final year in our middle and secondary teacher preparation program. It is in this internship year when TCs practice the theory they have learned and start making their own pedagogical choices. The internship year and its experiences are recognized by AMLE Standard 1: “Middle level teacher candidates understand, use, and reflect on the major concepts, principles, theories, and research related to young adolescent development and use that knowledge in their practice” (AMLE, 2012). The question I faced with the arrival of COVID-19 and the shutdown of in person school this past spring and fall as a teacher educator (TE) was this: How will I be able to provide these valuable moments of professional growth for my TCs if they are not in the buildings' The following description presents fellow teacher educators with my response to this question. I describe the creation of virtual peer observation experiences and in-real-time peer coaching that occurred in the virtual internship. Additionally, I describe the impact this process had on virtual post-observation conferences.Keywords: Virtual, Peer Coaching, Teacher Candidate, Observation

  • Planning for Middle Level Clinical Experiences During a Crisis

    • Authors: Kent Divoll et al.
      Abstract: This article describes the trials and tribulations that a middle level education program faced during the global pandemic and recommendations that others can take away from these experiences. The provided suggestions for middle level teacher education programs are specifically for the current pandemic, but can be used for other disasters as well. We advocate that educator preparation programs develop a plan to deal with possible school closers or other disruptions to their field placements to prepare for the next disaster. Some of the recommendations include: (a) create an emergency plan, (b) cultivate relationships, (c) prepare your candidates in the best practices of online teaching and educate them about online teaching platforms, (d) focus on the well-being of the candidates and not just ensuring that they complete the requirements, (e) consider relationship building skills when hiring field supervisors, (f) include strategies that help candidates understand how to deal with stress into your curriculum, and (g) adjust to situations on a case-to-case basis.

  • Teaching Candidates to Assess Student Learning: A COVID Collaboration with
           Arts and Sciences Faculty

    • Authors: Nancy B. Ruppert et al.
      Abstract: In the fall of 2020, due to COVID, our candidates did not have access to student work samples early in the semester. In order to learn how to assess student learning I reached out to an Arts and Sciences faculty who teaches a freshman course. The Arts and Science faculty was a former middle school teacher who was scheduled to talk about the teaching of writing in our methods class. We decided to add using work samples from her current students to provide an assessment experience. This exercise allowed candidates to create a one-point rubric, analyze student work, give feedback, examine patterns of learning for the whole class, as well as give suggestions for each student based on their work. The practice prepared them for their own fall teaching assignment and all were able to analyze their students' works successfully.

  • Simulating Collaboration in a Blended Course for Preservice Middle Grades
           Teachers: Attending to Team, Task, and Time

    • Authors: David C. Virtue
      Abstract: Collaboration and teamwork are essential aspects of the work of a professional middle level teacher and an integral part of AMLE Standard 5. Preservice teachers typically experience collaborative practices firsthand during field experiences, but the COVID-19 pandemic has caused many schools to shift instruction online thereby limiting the opportunities for teacher candidates to experience daily life in schools. Teacher educators can provide simulated opportunities for candidates to collaborate and engage in teamwork in virtual classroom settings. The author describes ways to simulate teacher collaboration in virtual settings by providing an example of engagements with teacher educators in a middle grades course with an emphasis on three aspects of planning: team, task, and time. The author reflects on the implementation of the simulation and offers recommendation for improvement.

  • Mediated Field Experiences During Worldwide Pandemic: Adjusting Pedagogies
           to a Changing Climate

    • Authors: Holly H. Pinter
      Abstract: This paper explores the use of a mediated field experience (MFE) for teacher candidates in a middle school setting a small laboratory school. This work focuses on adjustments made for the MFE to function in an online environment during remote instruction caused by a worldwide pandemic. Teacher candidates completed a learning cycle focused on experiencing mathematics as a learner, planning for mathematics instruction, implementing mathematics instruction, and analyzing teaching episodes alongside a mathematics teacher who is also the mathematics teacher educator for a methods course. Teacher candidates reflected on this experience positively, noting the benefits of learning how to teach effectively online in a safe and supportive environment. This paper will share the highlights and challenges for the mathematics teacher educator regarding the shifting of pedagogy to meet the current educational climate.

  • Uncharted WATERS: Sustaining a Meaningful Student Teaching Experience
           Amidst a Global Pandemic via an Online STEM Curriculum

    • Authors: Nanette I. Marcum-Dietrich et al.
      Abstract: Field experience is the culminating experience for pre-service teacher training. As COVID-19 closed schools across the country, pre-service teachers’ field experiences were disrupted. This case study examines how a student teacher, a team of mentor teachers, and a university supervisor at a regional public university adapted to remote learning. The findings suggest that there were gains and losses in terms of the pre-service teachers’ ability to develop essential skills; classroom management skills suffered while formative assessment practices, innovative lesson delivery, and reflection on instruction were enhanced. The transition to remote learning also caused the way student teachers’ skills were valued, as well as the effectiveness of their teaching, to change. How future teachers are prepared will need to be altered. Going forward, all teachers will need the skills to reach students in a variety of environments including face-to-face, remotely, and hybrid models.

  • The Evolving Middle School Concept: This We (Still) Believe

    • Authors: Lisa Harrison et al.
      Abstract: The Successful Middle School builds upon many decades of commitment to the middle school concept. The fifth edition of AMLE’s landmark position paper amplifies the importance of responding both to young adolescents’ developmental needs and to their social identities. The edition’s release amidst a global pandemic and increasing protests against racial injustice reminds us that responding to the full diversity of student experience is not optional. It is critical to helping young adolescents--and indeed the world--to thrive, now and in the future.

  • Introduction: Alternate Field Experiences

    • Authors: Amanda Wall
      Abstract: The articles in this issue of Current Issues in Middle Level Education share examples of ways that teacher education programs have responded to the ongoing challenges from COVID-19. At the time that this issue is published, it has been about a year since K-12 schools as well as colleges and universities transitioned to a variety of different models of instruction. Teacher educators have redesigned and reimagined field experiences and other aspects of teacher education to meet new realities. Throughout, a concern for health and safety of students, teachers, other school partners, teacher candidates, university supervisors, and others remains paramount. I hope that readers will see examples of shifts in teacher education that can inspire continued improvement and innovation to support teacher candidates and their current and future students. Throughout, authors have grounded their adaptations in guiding ideas for middle level education and teacher preparation.Also in this issue, CIMLE is excited to share an article by Lisa M. Harrison and Penny A. Bishop, authors of The Successful Middle School: This We Believe. This text is the new version of the Association for Middle Level Education’s position statement. Their article, first published by the journal of the European League for Middle Level Education, provides additional context for the new edition.

    • Authors: Nancy B. Ruppert
      Abstract: Over the past two years, middle school advocates have been sharing their thoughts on the following prompt: “What drives your spirit and commitment to middle level education'” The purpose has been to capture ‘the spirit’ of middle school* educators'’ From these stories five characteristics emerged that can help us consider how to promote the next generation of middle school leaders. Perhaps using the findings from this exercise can help us advocate for the next generation of middle school leaders. * For the purpose of this study, middle school refers to those who work with 10-15 year olds and includes intermediate schools, a K-8, middle schools, junior highs, or 9th grade academies.
