Rethinking Schools: Accountable to our Students, Accountable to Their Communities

May 14, 2012

The Spring 2012 edition of Rethinking Schools features writing from Dyan Watson, Assistant Professor of Education at Lewis & Clark Graduate School of Education and Counseling, and Oregon Writing Project Teacher Consultant Mark Hansen. 

Dyan’s piece, A Message from a Black Mom to Her Son uses examples from her own childhood to describe how she hopes her child will be treated by teachers, and what she fears. 

Mark’s article, Writing for Justice: Persuasion from the Inside Out, is a glimpse inside his classroom to see how he builds on his students’ lives and passions to help them create persuasive essays.
