"All Students Are Brilliant": A Confession of Injustice and a Call to Action
Robertson, Amy D.; Elliott, Leslie J. Atkins
Physics Teacher, v55 n9 p519-523 Dec 2017
The two of us (AR and LAE), in our teaching, research, and work with teachers, advocate for responsive teaching--an approach that seeks out and builds on the productive "seeds of science" in what our students say and do and assumes that "all students…are brilliant." This pedagogical approach requires a commitment to listening to and intellectually empathizing with students' scientific ideas.
