Summary Author Elizabeth Moje uses the voices of adolescents to help teachers think about effective literacy instruction in secondary school settings. The book offers strategies for learning about students both in and out of the classroom, and draws from adolescents' stories to highlight what students need from teachers. The author suggests an interdisciplinary, project-based pedagogy that connects several different content areas and employs multiple teaching and learning strategies. You will see the benefits of building trusting relationships with adolescents and helping them bring their out-of-school experiences into the classroom
