Summary "Trusting What You Know shows that building genuine trustworthy relationships between teachers and students is pivotal in students' capacity to learn. Based on an extended research study by Miriam Raider-Roth - an educational researcher and former elementary school teacher - Trusting What You Know reveals what students think about their relationships in the classroom and how these relationships shape their ability to learn. The book includes guiding principles for teachers, researchers, educators, and parents who want to understand the ways that human relationships at school fundamentally influence what children learn, know, and trust." "Trusting What You Know introduces us to a small group of sixth-grade students who reveal the complexity and power inherent in the relationships of school. While they talk about many school relationships, they focus mainly on their relationships with their teachers."
"This vital resource shows how important it is to pay attention to relationships in school because relationships form the very foundation of learning."--BOOK JACKET
