Overview

Create an inspiring, humanizing, and student-driven learning experience for your classroom

In Woven Together: How Unpacking Your Teacher Identity Creates a Stronger Learning Community, expert educator Dr. Courtney E. Rose delivers a student-driven approach to teaching that demonstrates how to bring your full self to the classroom. You’ll learn to create space for your students to do the same thing, de-standardizing the current norms of the classroom while embracing their unique experiences, perspectives and understandings to create more meaningful learning experiences.

Focusing specifically on teachers and teacher educators, this book explains the core issues associated with curriculum design and instructional implementation. It also includes:

  • Personal narratives from current educators and activities for deep reflection on how your identity impacts and informs your instruction
  • Methods for co-creating a classroom community and culture that works for your diverse student body
  • Action-oriented solutions and strategies for creating transformative learning experiences by putting your students at the forefront of your classroom’s learning environment

An indispensable resource for teachers already in the classroom, as well as pre-service teachers preparing to enter the classroom, Woven Together is the student-focused guide that education professionals have been waiting for.
