Wiki Space for Middle School Students and Teachers

Welcome to my Middle School Wiki Space. The tabs on the left guide students to a variety of activities and projects used in the 2008-2009 school year. For students in my classes during that period, most of the passwords still work over the summer.

For teachers and others interested in some of these activities, feel free to explore the tabs and use the teacher resources associated at the tabs and at the other websites connected to this web.

Current Projects

Research regarding reading--see Surveys.

Affordable online language learning programs Visit http://www.DrM-Language.com.

Classroom Library--Audiobooks, Books, Companion Books

The classroom library has a collection of almost 500 books and approximately 80 unabridged audiobooks recorded on cassettes. Many of these audiobooks have companion books in the school library. Students are encouraged to take books out of the classroom library and to share them at home with parents and brothers and sisters.


Presentation--Using Audio Books to Improve Reading and Academic Performance

The presentation covered the contents of a related research article and included time to sample several audio books, engage in a mini-literature circle sharing about the books reviewed, and explore how to involve parents, students, teachers, and libraries in projects to improve reading using audio books. For a full speaker's bio, visit the Joelmonty.net web site.

A copy of the presentation is available in Adobe Presenter format and is too large a file to include on this WikiSpace. It is available by following this link. Go to the Presentations section on that page.
