The Successful Middle School:
This We Believe
Virtual Book Study
AMLE’s landmark position paper, The Successful Middle School: This We Believe, now available in its fifth edition is recognized as the best articulation of the middle school concept. Since it was first published in 1982, This We Believe has grown from a single document into a comprehensive program that educators, schools, and districts can adopt to help ensure student success.
The Successful Middle School: This We Believe examines decades of research into the developmental nature of young adolescents and the school structures and practices that best support those needs. Over a total of 8 hours, this coach-led book study provides not just an overview of the content of The Successful Middle School book, but an opportunity to thoughtfully consider each of the 18 characteristic's implications for education, how each characteristic is currently supported in the participants' schools and collaboration to plan for what's next, all focused on what our students need.
You may also find it helpful to explore a glossary of terminology included in the text before beginning this book study.
