Constructing a High-Stakes Community in the Classroom: A Case Study of One Urban Middle-School Teacher
Rothrock, Racheal M.
Educational Forum, v81 n4 p363-376 2017
A teacher at an urban middle school worked to become part of her students' communities and utilized the notion of community within her pedagogy. Her example offers hope that engaging with students' communities and building community within the classroom are attainable and valuable goals. Her example also demonstrates that the concept of community can be relevant and powerful within a testing-focused environment that traditionally fosters competition and privileges the individual.
