Assessing and Using Students' Voices to Improve Your Curriculum
Shanklin, Nancy; Gaynor, Paige
Voices from the Middle, v18 n3 p57-60 Mar 2011
Pursuing student voice in your design of curriculum helps students take more ownership of their learning. Gaynor and Shanklin developed an open-ended survey to gather information about students' growing understandings of the purposes for reading and writing and to solicit feedback about the year's activities. The survey is presented here, along with information gleaned from the responses and how Gaynor used the results to retool for the next semester. (Contains 3 figures.)
