Promote engaging and energizing learning experiences with a student-centered approach to literacy.

Lessons come alive, students participate with keen interest, and productive learning experiences occur when teachers use authentic student-centered strategies in their reading and language arts classrooms and give students a real voice in their academic growth. In this unique resource, Karrell Hickman presents creative ways to make literacy instruction exciting and relevant, and outlines techniques for inspiring student motivation, exploration, and teamwork.

In addition to four fully developed long-term research projects that encourage student-centered learning while meeting NCTE and IRA standards, this practical text also offers:

  • Guidelines for using the student-centered approach with readings and assignments
  • Strategies for guiding students in effective project development, rubric scoring, self-monitoring, and self-evaluation
  • Time management strategies and resource lists for each project
  • Student samples and Quick Tip sections

Eliminate the guesswork and let this user-friendly resource expertly guide you and your students on a rich journey of collaborative learning.
