What's one thing middle schools should be teaching but aren't?

Social skills, how to handle bullies, anger management. All of which also need to be reinforced at home also.

They aren't teaching us anything worth knowing, end of discussion.

But something they should teach, is how to be independent. Kids really need to learn some responsibility and what not. The kids in my grade are borderline useless.

Organizational and study skills. They assume that kids have learned all of this in elementary school, but then the huge LEAP to middle school is so overwhelming that I think there should be more focus on how to deal with all the work!

Responsibility. They need a system so they can be responsible and know all the homework and due dates. Then they need to do it or face the consequences.

organizational and study skills - ways to track their assignments, schedules, etc. This does not come naturally to everyone. My son's whole class were given planners and expected to use them, but no one has taught them how.

Note-taking skills. My daughter was chastised by her 7th grade teacher for not taking good notes - I said, "Well, when are you going to teach it? They don't do that in elem. school." She was dumbfounded. Def. need to teach American History more!

Teach? MOST do NOT insist on neat penmanship, and as a 'sub' working 40+ schools I see the consequence of this neglect every day. I do insist on it when I distribute papers, and when I see illegible work I ask that it be corrected.

History! AND the REAL history of the US(so much has been changed to make one political party appealing, right, etc). I read over my daughter's history book and was appalled. I was a teacher and in my h. book, they combined the Pilgrims and Puritan

well,being a middle school student, i think we should have a class to teach us social skills such as how to handle certain situations in the real world and anger managment. that could really help
