PLC Series: Celebrating Voice

Welcome to the Heinemann PD Professional Learning Community Series. This month we celebrate the inspiring work that students and teachers do together every day. 

How do we celebrate student voice? Colleen Cruz suggests we can move toward this by first identifying our own voices.

In this video blog, Colleen describes a memory of Don Graves speaking about his own writing life and is reminded how the “personal becomes universal”. Colleen suggests that when we authentically write and share our own stories with students, they feel more compelled to tell their own.
