For Middle School Teachers Everywhere: Being 12

A friend of mine who is a middle school science coordinator and teacher tipped me off to this amazing series from WNYC this month: "Being 12." It's a gold mine for middle school teachers everywhere, who can use these podcasts to convey the beautiful reality of everyday life in a middle school to those who just don't get it. She's also using it as a catalyst for exploration and a mentor text. Students will "read" a wide range of multimodal texts and then create their own podcasts.
