  4. I'm Listening: How Teacher-Student Relationships Improve Reading, Writing, Speaking and Listening

    I’m listening: How teacher-student relationships improve reading, writing, speaking, and listening debunks the misconception that a teacher can’t offer grades 6-12 students both academic rigour and emotional support. While sharing activities grounded in social-emotional research, author Beth Pandolpho reveals how listening to students’ voices enables them to practice crucial literacy skills and simultaneously build positive, trust-based teacher-student relationships. She guides readers as they foster an environment that is personally welcoming and educationally ambitious. Creating such a caring, engaging classroom provides students the support they need to develop social-emotional skills and to persevere through difficult and demanding coursework.

  12. Readers Front and Centre: Helping All Students Engage with Complex Texts

    Every teacher wants and expects their students to be reading increasingly complex texts, yet sometimes the gap between our expectations and our students' abilities seems wide and deep. It's tempting to look at that gap and step in to fill it for them, but then we'd be doing most of the "heavy lifting" - the understanding, analysis and interpretation that our students should be learning for themselves. Readers Front and Centre is an attempt to help teachers help their students take on identities as learners. Filled with examples of one-on-one conferences, small groups and whole-class scenarios, this essential book provides an accessible and inspiring model of how - and why - we need to put students at the front and centre of our teaching.
