Summary

The resource guide consists of a Metaphor Module which is designed to be conducted with an audience of school leadership teams. Teams from several schools, in the same district or in different districts, can come together for the day-long workshop. The morning is spent learning the language of a nautical journey as a metaphor for the middle-grades reform process; the afternoon focuses on asking questions as a critical activity to support targeted and effective school reform. An outline of the module lists time, training sequence, and materials and equipment, followed by supplementary material. Appended are lists of the following resources for middle grades: state and national reform documents; California League of Middle Schools Publications; professional organizations; National Middle School Association (NMSA) annotated publication resources; NMSA video resources; California Department of Education Office of Middle Grades Support Services; Regional Networks of Middle Grades Partnership and Foundation Schools; Regional Networks of Middle Grades Partnership Schools Expansion Network; California Curriculum Projects; California State Department of Education publications; major themes from "Caught in the Middle: Educational Reform for Young Adolescents in California Schools," characteristics of middle-grade students distilled from five writers; and a two-page summary of "Caught in the Middle."
