My newest book shares the results of my nationwide survey of 6th-12th graders. In that survey, I asked one simple question: What engages you as a learner? The responses came from states all over the country and from every school model, from traditional public schools to charter schools, from private schools classes to homeschooled students, from rural communities to urban centers. With every response, I soon realized that are all asking that teachers utilize the same strategies. These requests became the focus of the chapters of the book. Just Ask Us is full of quotes from the students themselves, research from those in academic circles, videos into classrooms to see each strategy in action, and lessons from across the subject areas to try yourself. The companion website also includes a downloadable survey for your own students so that you can start on a journey to be the engaging teacher that you can be. Order now!
