In this issue of Inspired by Louisiana, we focus on middle schools.
The title of Jennifer L. Holm’s book sums it up: “Middle School Is Worse Than Meatloaf.”
In middle school, students are faced with learning how to navigate more complex social dynamics, more difficult curriculum, newfound freedom, churning hormones, and a desire to fit in and be popular.
In this edition of Louisiana Inspired, we talk to experts about:
- In an era of social instability at an all-time high, what are some Louisiana middle schools doing?
- What an organization is doing to help middle school students build confidence and learn new skills;
- How Georgia students are learning kitchen skills to help address food insecurity;
- Even the discovery of shipwreck will not alleviate the difficulties of secondary schools;
- As children begin to explore their identities and learn about friendships, how a counselor can help middle school students navigate the years filled with important social and emotional learning opportunities.
