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.
