Greetings from the editors
As former middle level English language arts teachers, we know well the joys and challenges of teaching middle level learners. We hope that Voices from the Middle will continue to serve you as a vibrant source of professional development, highlighting best practices in the craft of middle level teaching, pieces from middle grades and young adult authors, and even ideas, responses, and celebrations from the students we serve. We hope to do so with a growing attention to offering our readers interactive and multimodal content. We welcome your participation in growing YOUR journal in ways that make an impact on your students and your teaching.

—Sara Kajder (The University of Georgia) and Shelbie Witte (Oklahoma State University)

Have you got an eye for a great photo?


May 2021 Mic Drop In this final issue for our editorial team, we invite you to share the messages that need to be heard, the stories that need to be told, and the experiences that need to be understood but have not yet been. We invite you to say the hard things about the teaching and learning in the middle level that haven’t been said before or have been said but ignored. What shifts need to occur in order for your students to thrive or for you to succeed in the teaching profession? What innovative, extraordinary or radical ideas exist that need more attention by stakeholders? (pen names or pseudonyms accepted). Submission deadline: August 1, 2020
