Voices from the Middle Podcast, Vol. 25, Episode 9

In this episode, we hear from our teacher panelists about the new and innovative things they are trying out with their students as they enter the last quarter of the school year. Gretchen Taylor, Alex Corbitt, and Beth Shaum sat down and chatted together about their classes and how they are shaking things up with their students. In the latest segment of Voices from the Bookshelf, seventh graders Sammy, Sydney, Makenna, Eriss, Addison, and Estella from Monticello Middle School sit down to talk with their teacher Katherine Sokolowski about the books they are currently reading, the books they’ve most enjoyed this year, and what books they can’t wait to read next.
