All students are made for learning. What they bring to our classrooms should be valued as entry points for instruction and even beyond. It is the teacher who co-constructs and sustains the environment to help make this possible.

In this episode, I talk with Brian Cambourne and Debra Crouch, the authors of Made for Learning: How the Conditions of Learning Guide Teaching Decisions, about:

  • How they define engagement,

  • How teacher language is critical for creating these environments, and

  • The importance of understanding our own beliefs about teaching and learning.
