Voices Carry: A Content Analysis of "Voices from the Middle"
Wilson, Melissa B.; Blady, Shannon; Kumar, Tracey; Moorman, Honor; Prior, Lori; Willson, Angeli
Voices from the Middle, v18 n4 p9-16 May 2011
As educators who have been strongly influenced by this journal, the authors decided to do a content analysis of the "voices" from "Voices from the Middle," from its inception to today. They listened closely to who is talking, what the authors are (and are not) discussing, the educational contexts of these conversations, and how the dialogue has changed over time. What they found were common themes that ran across the ongoing discussion, as well as issues in language arts teaching and learning being worked out in ongoing dialogue.
