Students Center Stage

Focusing Classrooms on Challenging Work

September 29, 2015

How can teachers allow students to lead the learning—and teaching—in their classrooms?

In Students Center Stage: Focusing Classrooms on Challenging Work, the winners of the 2015 Fishman Prize for Superlative Classroom Practice unpack how they equip and empower their students to lead the learning process. With innovative yet practical strategies for quickly assessing and stretching students’ understanding, these four exceptional teachers are teaching their students to compose reasoned arguments, question the nature of the universe, recite poems on a stage, and even teach other little ones their ABCs.

Experience their classrooms through their own eyes, and see first-hand what’s possible when teachers and their students grapple with doubt, and difficulty, working their way toward clarity—and mastery.

Students Center Stage is the fourth installment of the annual Fishman Prize series.
