Responsive Teaching: A Framework for Inviting Success with Students Who "Fly below the Radar" in Middle School Classrooms
Kronenberg, Jessy; Strahan, David B.
Journal of Invitational Theory and Practice, v16 p78-88 2010
By focusing on one student, this case study illustrated ways that successful teachers invited success and may help other teachers create connections with students. This study chronicled one student's responses to her teachers' efforts to engage her during a teaching activity. Data from interviews, observations, and work samples showed how the connections she made with teachers, classmates, and information shaped her understanding on content. During this activity, Mariah developed personal connections with concepts which helped her understand ideas at a deeper level. Teachers encouraged these connections by differentiating instruction in a personal way as they identified Mariah's learning strengths, tapped her interests, and extended her thoughts.
