About Middle Grades Collaborative

We represent a unique collaboration of colleges providing ongoing professional development for aspiring and practicing teachers of 10-15 year olds. Since 1991, the Middle Grades Collaborative has offered the Middle Grades Institute, aimed at providing this support and, in addition, helping educators earn their Middle Grades Teaching Endorsement. Although the Collaborative is based in Vermont, both Vermonters and teachers well beyond our state’s borders have found the institute to be a meaningful and important professional development experience. The Collaborative also partners with schools to provide on-site professional development tailored to a school's needs. Beginning in 2015, the Collaborative is launching a new journal. The Middle Grades Review invites a critical perspective and provides a forum for discussion and debate within the field of middle grades education.
