A New Newsletter

Screen Shot 2015-09-26 at 3.40.16 PMHey there everyone!

Welcome to the revamped version of our newsletter.
As an IMLA member, you may remember it as the Hot Topic Newsletter, and while we all know that there are definitely hot topics within education, there are also many aspects of our work that stay the same over long periods of time.  Thus, we’ve retitled it: In the Middle.
Our new In the Middle newsletter will focus on all aspects of middle level teaching.  We’ll share information about pedagogy, videos, apps, current practice, future thinking, and more!  Click on each picture in the newsletter to be taken to somethign different!
Each month we’ll send out one issue to any school that has previously been an IMLA member.  But we’re also sharing out a separate newsletter later each month with more links, more information, and access to other opportunities for IMLA members.

(you can also find it on the IMLA Facebook Page)
