About Middle Grades Collaborative

The Middle Grades Collaborative (MGC) is committed to improving education for young adolescents. We are a collaboration of colleges and universities specializing in professional development for middle school educators. Designed for aspiring and practicing teachers of 10-15 year olds, our organization offers a week-long summer Middle Grades Institute and an accompanying day-long winter conference

We also host the Middle Grades Review, an open access journal for scholars and practitioners; the Middle Grades Webinar Series for educators who want to stay current with middle grades teaching practices; online Modules for self-paced and collaborative learning; and other relevant Resources for effective middle grades practice. Join us!
