Tweenteacher Book Title Contest

By on July 9, 2010

Hey readers!

I am hoping that the power of social media can help a gal out.  I’m in the need of a catchy title for my new book that is due out in early 2011.  The working title is Tips for Tweenteachers, but it just doesn’t light my fire, nor has is resonated with early reviewers.  It reflects what the book is about, but not my voice.

So here’s the deal.  If you can help out and come up with a title that my publisher selects, he will send you a free copy of my book when it’s published as well as two more titles of your choice from the Eye On Education library.

So what do have to lose?  I could use the help, since my wall already has a head-sized hole in it from where I’ve been banging my noggin for the last few months trying to solve this problem.

Just leave any suggestions here, and I’ll get back to you if your title is selected.  Thanks so much for your help!

    What about something like A Practical Guide to Tweenteaching or The Tweenteacher’s Book of Daring? Left in the Middle: Tips for Tweenteachers?

    Help us with the tone?

    I’m loving Between Crises and Crayons. I think you’re on to something there! Thanks for lending my your brain power, Chad!

    How about something like:

    (1) Learn How To Rock as a TweenTeacher
    (2) TweenTeachers Rock: A Guide to Teaching Those Caught In The Middle
    (3) Caught In The Middle: Rock as a Tweenteacher

    I hope those at least spark some ideas. Have a fabulous day and I cannot wait until the book comes out!

    Thanks so much for giving this some thought! I think that the Caught in the Middle might be a little too close to Nancie Atwell’s middle school teaching book title, In the Middle, but you’ve given me tons to think about.

    Thanks again, and I’ll report back when the book’s out!

    Hi Heather!

    As I couldn’t find another way of contacting you, I decided it was time to profess my love for your website to the world (or at least to your faithful followers of Tweenteacher :o) It was love at first “site” while I was researching methods for organizing classroom libraries. That love quickly turned into a deep, committed relationship…and now, I simply can’t stay away from your posts. I am as inexperienced as a new teacher can be, about to start student teaching in 3 weeks in all levels of freshman English, and I’m looking to you for some much needed advice. Your passion and commitment is a driving force and I hope to follow in your footsteps as a knowledgeable, creative, yam of a teacher. But right now, I’m scared to death of failing. How do you do it all?! I can only imagine teaching, raising a child, maintaining a website, presenting at conferences, and being happy while keeping my sanity intact. I’d like to think I’m a force to be reckoned with, but at this point, I can’t imagine being in your shoes. You are the type of educator I want to become. Before you had your own classroom, do you remember feeling the way I do now: a little insecure about your future and somewhat unsure about your teaching philosophy? How have you gotten to the point where you’re at now? What advice do you have for an up-and-comer like me? Thank you so much for your words of wisdom! PS. this is just one of many questions I have if there happens to be a better way of contacting you! PPS. I have a level 78 Paladin and a level 78 druid in WoW!

    @Selina You are cracking me up! Thanks so much for your suggestions. I especially like the one that mentions the jungle of middle school hormones that we all seem to sludge through daily. It’s a pleasure to hear your smile in your writing. See you tomorrow!
