From Inquiry To Action: The Benefits of Civic Engagement for Students

inquiry-to-action-cover

Students become committed to school when they inquire into the issues in front of them in life. In his newest book, Steven Zemelman gives step by step instructions for developing civic engagement in your classroom through research, argument, speaking and listening, close analysis of social issues and structures, and writing for authentic audiences. In this video, Steve discusses the benefits of such project-based work.
