In a collection of chapters from high school teachers and university researchers, Raise Your Voices offers English language arts teachers "one-stop shopping" to learn how to foster dialogic classrooms and how to prompt, sustain, connect, and assess classroom discussions, especially discussions about issues that adolescents find consequential. The chapters explore both the basics for facilitating discussion to support literacy learning and the principles for assessing the progress and effect of discussion and for including all students in lively dialogue. Taken together, the entries in this book envision the English language arts classroom as a supportive environment for authentic inquiry and for the genuine democratic processes involved in grappling together with tough perennial and contemporary issues.
