The start of the junior high school begins 1994 Students at this age should be in a setting that is appropriate for them Being able to start to moving from class to class, seeing other students regularly an limiting their interactions with older students Past, Present, & Future..Continuing to Guide Middle School The Middle Piece to Education 1975 The Rise of Middle Schools Programs According to Cheri Yecke article Mayhem in the Middle there are ten strategies for transitions 1. include parents 2. add higher grades 3. grade level balance 4. make transition at 6th grade * 5. strict transfer policy 6. modify facilitates 7.high expectations 8. decide on academic approach 9. provide access to advanced courses 10. greater access to extra-curricular activities 1910 1960's A major component of middle schools is to provide a transition from elementary school to high school Transition gaining ability physically, mentally, & emotional separation and more independence from authority The Rise of Middle Schools People wanted a school environment that fostered the needs of young adolescences-junior high schools were falling short In fact jr. high schools were turning into "miniature high schools", exactly what this age student does not need. For young adolescents it is important for them to be active -extracurricular activities help in several ways... Improvement of motor skills and physical fitness; • Enhancement of normal physical and social growth and maturation; • Improvement of socialization, self-esteem, self-perception and psychological well-being; • Establishment of a basis for a healthy lifestyle and lifelong commitment to physical activity NSMA More and more advocates for middle schools begun to find ways to help develop these schools The middle school concept is set up to support a challenging curriculum that best supports their students. Start of the Middle School The call to reform Jr. High schools-they were become "pale imitations of high schools" Journey of the Middle School Number of middle schools goes to 12, 530 Soon middle schools rise above the number of jr. highs-1 jr high for every 3 middle schools People need a more suitable learning environment for young adolescents A school that fit all the needs of a growing child, not only the academic aspects but the social and emotional as well In 1960's a call to reform jr. high schools evolved to reform to middle school concept Jr. High's Surviving Teen Years Facts for Families-No.57 Past, Present, & Future..Continuing to Guide Safe and Stable Environment 1995 1930's strong peer influence...clothing, actions, hobbies, habits moodiness, feeling awkward focused on present-not looking ahead The Rise of Middle Schools Why middle schools?

The ASCD established the Council on the Emerging Adolescent Learner and soon published 'The Middle School We Need' As mentioned middles schools were started to help accommodate issues that certain age children go through. So how do they address these issues? Approximately 6.8 million students enrolled in middle schools Support for Success Knowing the history and how middles were started, we are able to see the goals that went into creating these schools.

Transcript: Process & Timeline April 2013 Concept Process & Timeline January-April The Process & Timeline The Research & Implications for Research: Physical As a result of the “right-sizing” process of 2010, middle school students, grades 7 and 8, were moved from a K-8 configuration to high schools. Middle School Vision for KCPS Implication for Practice Implementation of effective developmentally responsive, research-based programs and practices to increase student achievement and graduation rates. Themes which emerged Rigorous, Relevant Curriculum Team of highly-qualified middle school teachers with common plan Effective academic and social/emotional interventions Daily Physical Education Extra- and Co-Curricular Opportunities Elective Choices Advisory Parental Involvement Safe and orderly school environment “A day in the life” Growth spurts comparable to the first two years of life Growth in height, weight, and internal organs Coordination issues Fatigue and body aches Large appetites Classrooms Central Middle School (600) BY OTHERS Middle School “Our fundamental finding is that, in high poverty environments, a student’s middle grades experience strongly impacts the odds of graduating from high school.” Middle School Achievement Right-sizing SWECC (202) ACE (197) Paseo (176) Foreign Lang. 6-8 (166) Lincoln 6-8 (332) HOLLIS + MILLER Four community meetings are held to meet with parents and other stakeholders and listen to their concerns and priorities related to the middle school discussion: Tuesday, March 5 - Longfellow Elementary Thursday, March 7 - Trailwoods Elementary Tuesday, March 12 - Garfield Elementary Thursday, March 14 - Paige Elementary Middle School Children Characteristics Implication for Practice Collaboration Spaces Report to the Kansas City Board of Education and the Superintendent. Options for Co-curricular during the school day Provide a variety of educational approaches Rigorous curriculum (quality core) Authentic and integrated learning experiences Active and hands-on learning Exploration opportunities Deliver core learning utilizing a team of teachers Advisory Committee Subcommittees Parents Intellectual Title Social/Emotional November 2012 - Architects are enlisted to evaluate and make suggestions regarding possible middle school sites. December 2012 - Middle school consultants enlisted to guide the organization through the early discussion and gather input from stakeholders. Middle school consultants talk with all secondary building level principals and small focus groups of students regarding their experiences in the present configuration, grades 7-12. Applications are submitted and accepted from 8o individuals (parents, community members, teachers, and administrators). These individuals make up the Middle School Advisory Committee. Subcommittees are formed to review current research, cite the implication for practice, and make recommendations to the Middle School Advisory Committee in the following areas: parental involvement, extra/cocurricular activities, core, non-core, and prevention and student support. (Breaking Ranks in the Middle, XVI, NASSP, 2006). Process & Timeline March 2013 Middle School Achievement Process & Timeline: January 2013 BY OTHERS Middle level programming in high schools is at least challenging due to the following factors: facilities that were built as high schools, the mixing of age groups, the sharing of teachers with mixed grade levels, and an inability to keep students totally separated. Although every age group can claim unique developmental needs, there is none so worthy of this claim as children ages 12-14. Question: Should the Kansas City Public Schools reinstate the middle school concept in neighborhood schools? Northeast Middle School (600) Curious and have a wide array of interests Moving from concrete to abstract thought Question authority Appreciate humor but not sarcasm Build on prior knowledge Cognitive functioning varies significantly among students Appreciate authentic and integrated learning The Middle School Advisory Committee and the Middle School Subcommittees were charged to look at the research as it relates to best practices in middle level education in an effort to focus the district on critical elements to be incorporated in the middle school discussion and subsequent planning. This research was shared with parents and community members at the four zone meetings, with the Middle School Advisory Committee, and with Middle School Subcommittees. School Configurations Right-sizing Process & Timeline November - December 2012 HOLLIS + MILLER “HSMS followed the middle school concept/philosophy more faithfully and implemented recommended middle school components (e.g., interdisciplinary teaming, advisory programs, common planning time for core teachers) more frequently than in the random schools.” “Middle schools authentically following the middle school concept/ philosophy are more like to be associated with higher scores on achievement test and

They must manage homework assignments from several teachers, study for tests, and keep track of projects.

Transcript: Conclusion Abstract Question? http://www.easysurf.cc/ndatets1.htm http://ubiquity.acm.org/article.cfm?id=1455706- PHILIP YAFFE Background Research I developed a hypothesis and tested it, I was successful and I solve the problem.I used the scientific method accordingly and resulted in a correct hypothesis.I look forward to test this more, but for now it's settled. My reason for doing this project is due to a school grade.Therefore,in this project I will state my hypothesis , question , Background research and more. I observed in the first month the days went quicker because i had a lot of sleep, int he second i had less sleep making the days longer. Does days go by faster in a year or slower? Conclusion Statement Middle School Project Hypothesis The main reason why we feel the days going faster is probably because, the season. Also, it might be as we are older, time goes slow like you can do everything in life slower. My hypothesis is that time goes faster as we age.We always dream of getting married ,landing a job , and driving a car. As, soon as we achieve these goals they just wither away.Why is that? Hypothesis/Experimental Design Part:1 I have figured to make a test,every day I count the hours minus the sleeping,and I write it down.Then, I calculated for 2 months.The first month I came up 431 , and the second month came up with 547. Observations Experimental Design Resources and Bibliography
