Classroom Rules Reimagined as the Rights of the Learner

The article describes how one fifth-grade teacher helped her students to exercise their Rights of the Learner (e.g., to be confused; to claim a mistake; to speak, listen, and be heard; and to write, do, and represent what makes sense) as they learned to graph and interpret non-linear data.

Footnotes

Fifth graders learned to graph and interpret nonlinear data by exercising their rights: to be confused; to claim a mistake; to speak, listen, and be heard; and to write, do, and represent what makes sense.
