2021 CHOICE Outstanding Academic Title

Across the globe, students are speaking up, walking out, and marching for social and ecological justice. Despite deficit discourses about students, youth are using their voice and agency to call forth a better world. Will educators respond to this call to stand with students in relational solidarity as co-constructors of a new tomorrow? What is possible when teachers and students engage together in new ways? Pedagogies of With-ness: Students, Teachers, Voice and Agency offers insight into the transformative possibilities of education when enacted as the art of being with. Driven by student voices and their experiences of marginalization, this text takes a clear ethical stance. It asserts that students are both capable and competent. Taking a narrative approach, this book honors academic work that is rooted in educational practice. Expanding beyond traditional conceptions of student voice, chapters engage in meditations on three themes: identity, pedagogy, and partnership. This book is an exploration of with-ness, a way of knowing, being, and acting. By centralizing the all-too-often suppressed wisdom of youth, teachers and researchers engage in new forms of critique and possibility-making with students. Editors reflect on this central theme, exploring the dimensions of such pedagogies of with-ness. Through this book, teachers are invited to imagine pedagogy under this new framework, actively committed to students, their voice, and mutual engagement.

Reviews & Endorsements:

“Taken collectively, this volume provides a solid, passionate argument for reimagining American educational systems. As such, it will be a strong addition to programs in teacher education or, especially, in school leadership.” (See full review in November 2021 issue of CHOICE magazine, Vol. 59, No. 3.)

Excerpt of review by H. M. Miller, Mercy College for CHOICE magazine (Nov. 2021)

“Brilliant stories of oppression, marginalization, and power. Stories of schooling, sometimes angry and pain-filled -- always honest and powerful. This collection brings us voices of passion, voices we have silenced and ignored at our own peril. We need the wisdom in this book, especially its powerful and empowering strategies for deep listening and collaboration. Impossible to read without gaining insight and compassion.”

Mara Sapon-Shevin, Professor of Education, Syracuse University

“This book offers rich description of how we can help young people to learn how to make a difference in their lives and their community. It provides important examples of the conditions and contexts in which young people learn how to develop agency.”

Dana Mitra, Professor of Education, Penn State University, Founding editor of the International Journal of Student Voice

“The chapters in this book collectively invite the reader to re-examine personal conceptualizations of child and adolescent growth and development, the purpose of schooling, and the individual and societal impact of specific pedagogies. Emphasis is placed on centering student voice as an imperative for reciprocal development in teaching and learning.”

Etta R. Hollins, Professor Emerita and Kauffman Endowed Chair, University of Missouri, Kansas City
