"All the Stories That We Have": Adolescents' Insights About Literacy and Learning in Secondary Schools is based on the premise that young people have important stories to tell-stories that teachers can learn from, respond to, and incorporate into classroom literacy learning. Author Elizabeth Birr Moje suggests that teachers recognize the importance of students' out-of-school experiences in planning a classroom curriculum, which will engage adolescents in learning and help them to see a larger purpose for education. The author also demonstrates that adolescents need strong, caring relationships with adults, especially teachers. Such relationships encourage students to examine new ideas, learn new skills, and build new relationships. This book also provides ideas that will allow teachers to weave their teaching of literacy skills into critical, inquiry-based projects in which students examine questions of interest to them.
Although Moje emphasizes students' insights in this book, she also reflects on her own teaching, draws from the extensive knowledge base of teachers with whom she has worked, and summarizes related literacy research. Interspersed throughout this book and others in the Kids InSight series are Reflection Points, which ask the reader to reflect on his or her own practice, allowing for consideration of personal philosophies and strategies for teaching literacy.
"All the Stories That We Have" will touch middle school and high school teachers of all content areas, especially those who recognize the need to reach their students in meaningful, lasting ways.
