I've Got Something to Say: How Student Voices Inform Our Teaching
144 pages • 8½ x 11
Classrooms where student voices count encourage students to be more engaged with their learning, and to connect to issues that will affect their education. In this timely book, teachers will learn how to inspire students to buy into their own learning by giving them a voice in determining, organizing, structuring, and responding to what is happening in the classroom. Throughout the book, transcripts from real children's classroom dialogues and conversations elaborate on a huge variety of classroom interactions. The book offers practical strategies that will engage students in thoughtful dialogue and discussion as a class, in groups, and with partners. Students will learn to recognize when they have a voice, when they are marginalized, and what they can do about being heard.
