Middle School Geometry

As a middle school teacher educator, I am interested in how the forum can
facilitate discussion between and among middle school teachers, middles
school teacher educators, middle school students, and secondary teachers
and/or students.

In looking at the middle school curriculum, topics between secondary and
middle school are very similar. The approach to discussing those topics
are different but are these difference so extreme that discussion cannot
occur between teachers? I don't think so. It seems as though ideas and
activities about geometry can be shared.

In many cases, middle school teachers specialize in two or more content
areas and therefore may not have the mathematical background or training
that secondary teachers may have. However, opening a dialog between
these two groups of teachers can only be beneficial to both groups.

I would be very interested in hearing from anyone who would be interested
in encouraging middle school teachers to read and communicate to others
over the forum.
