Immediately Hooked: Exploring #OwnVoices
The idea is simple: students engage more in a text if that text shares their identity. #OwnVoices appeals to many students who might otherwise feel like an outcast in the traditional classroom. Despite all our best efforts to make a work relatable, certain students remain marginalized without a significant change in our teaching and learning strategies. Panelists discuss the goal of how to empower minority voices within the classroom.
