Educators’ Turn, with Mawi Asgedom: Dr. Edie Weinthal

by Amanda on January 30, 2013

Ready for something new? We want to give leading educators a chance to share their perspectives and experiences. I’ll host the interviews myself and post the recordings on this blog.  Educators themselves are the real experts; let’s allow their voices to be heard.

Educators’ Turn: Dr. Edie Weinthal

Dr. Weinthal is a leader in English education, having served as a teacher, author, department leader, and     District English Supervisor. I first met Dr. Weinthal at a conference for the National Council of Teachers of English, and I am excited that she has agreed to share her thoughts with us in this interview. Listen below to hear how she’s engaging educators in inspiring and empowering students to develop their voice.

Great interview. All of Dr. Edie’s points can be applied to engaging and empowering teachers and principals as well. This level of engagement and empowerment to truly make a difference for our kids is necessary in this age of obsession with test scores. Educators must feel they can make a real difference in a real world, not a world which has been reduced to the most easily gathered data.

Thanks, Carol! I want to interview you soon to get your thoughts on voice, too – I still remember how you gave students at your school some time to pursue an interest each week.
