  2. The Power of Teacher Talk: Promoting Equity and Retention Through Student Interactions

    The Power of Teacher Talk investigates the connections between two persistent educational challenges: high numbers of students who drop out and of teachers who leave the profession. Based on a study of thousands of daily interactions between new justice-oriented English teachers and their students, this book proposes that teachers who show a commitment to equity in their communications can positively affect student retention and are more likely to remain in the profession. Deborah Bieler urges teachers to be aware of and intentional about the power of their interactions with students - in everything from their classroom décor and informal corridor chats to their responses to challenging moments during class and in after-class discussions.

  3. A Think-Aloud Approach to Writing Assessment: Analyzing Process & Product with Adolescent Writers

    The think-aloud approach to classroom writing assessment is designed to expand teachers' perspectives on adolescent students as writers and help them integrate instruction and assessment in a timely way. Emphasising learning over evaluation, it is especially well-suited to revealing students' strengths and helping them overcome common challenges to writing such as writer's block or misunderstanding of the writing task. Sarah Beck describes how to implement the think-aloud method and shows how this method is flexible and adaptable to any writing assignment and classroom context. The book also discusses the significance of the method in relation to best practices in formative assessment, including how to plan think-aloud sessions with students to gain the most useful information.
