Making Middle School is the story of eighth-grade English teacher Steve Fulton and science teacher Tiffany Green's explorations of the intersections between critical literacy and science through maker spaces alongside their students. Steve and Tiffany, with thinking partner Cindy Urbanski, use the idea of make to centre student learning in their classrooms as well as to democratize learning, back-loading English and science standards while front-loading the current focus on STEAM.

Making - following one's own desire to create - is based on principles of connected learning, where students work in community to challenge themselves, to be creative, and to wonder about their world.  Making represents a pathway directed by the learner and allowed to unfold organically, without a scripted route or destination. By looking up close at the real work of teachers and students, Fulton and Urbanski illustrate the rich and real applications of a make-based approach in today's middle school classrooms.
