We say, “Student voice matters,” but are we really listening? Student voice. The phrase seems ubiquitous these days. But for all the talk about student voice at conferences and professional development meetings, the adults’ voices are still the only ones being heard in too many schools. Rebecca Coda and Rick Jetter hope to change that with Let Them Speak! In this powerful and inspiring book, you’ll learn . . . how to find out what your students really think, feel, and need, why it’s so important for students to feel like you care about them, what to do with the feedback you get from students, and how to use student voice to improve education and school culture. What do your students have to say about grading, homework, bullying, schedules . . . life? Be willing to ask, and then Let Them Speak!
