A flurry of recent studies show how concerned teachers and parents are about adolescent girls. What's been missing in the research are practical strategies for changing the curriculum and building communities that help girls grow up secure and strong. "We Want to Be Known", written by teacher researchers throughout the country, documents successful innovations. The writers show through the stories of their classrooms how they changed as they watched and listened to girls. Everything from including strong female role models in math and science, to developing service learning programs, to considering the special needs of minority girls, is presented in down-to-earth, teacher-to-teacher prose. You'll find detailed explanations of how to start discussion groups for girls, ferret out books that have strong women characters, and help male colleagues understand girls' needs.
"We Want to Be Known" also includes some eloquent poems and essays written by adolescent girls. The writing is a fascinating window into girl culture and is suitable for read-alouds and discussions with students about growing up female in America. The book concludes with extensive annotated bibliographies of recommended books compiled by teachers and young girls.About the Author:
Ruth Shagoury Hubbard, Maureen Barbieri, and Brenda Miller Power first began to share their passions for writing and teaching at the University of New Hampshire-first as students, and later as consultants through the Writing Process Laboratory and Summer Literacy Programs. Though they now live across the continent from each other (in Oregon, New York, and Maine) they continue to work together and share their interests in teaching writing as well as their commitment to teacher research and understanding the special needs of adolescent girls. Though they have all edited several other collections by teachers, this is their first team collaboration.
