Want to Learn About Middle School Dances?

Are you familiar with This American Life, a weekly radio program on NPR? Recently, This American Life repeated a broadcast from last year. This episode takes you into the sometimes awkward, confusing, and hormonally charged world of the middle school dance. The episode also covers a teacher who transforms peer pressure into a force for good, and reports from the frontlines of the middle school dance. Hear the Dance Episode
