Amplify Learner Voice pushes back against traditional assessment and grading practices that continue to be an inequitable endeavor for our nation’s learners; traditional classroom practices continue to sort and label students by characterizing them by "what they need to work on" or ‘lack.'
In this book, seven authors and The Core Collaborative’s partner schools reimagine formative assessment through an asset-based, cultural lens to make a greater impact on learning and our shared humanity.
From the Authors
“This book blends culture and instruction. Too often these topics are addressed in isolation. Collectively, we worked hard to provide insight to educators on how culture is infused in teaching and learning.”
– Connie Hamilton (7 Mindshifts for School Leaders)
