The complexity of the 21st century middle school student can be challenging. Students who would rather text message than talk to each other makes for a different world. They are talking on their cell phone, sending messages on their computer, talking to their friends and doing homework at the same time. It has made middle school an interesting place to try to keep students focused on learning. Middle school students have become accustomed to a fast-paced day. It's time to fill their lives with experiences that make middle school a place to run too (sic) not from. Let's take the middle school years as a tremendous opportunity to help students to encounter a whole new journey to their future.
