Example text

When the adolescent is required to present his or her findings to the public, they find a sense of purpose and a need for quality that has been lacking in their typical acquiescent and docile learning regimen. Having a public audience contributes to adolescents feeling A Good Stage/Environment Fit for Adolescents 39 acknowledged and appreciated. Learning in that context is relevant and important; engagement grows, and so does hope. Back-to-basics education is too limiting, according to Heath (1994).

P. 79) These four requirements speak to the survey components mentioned in chapter 3. Feeling safe to ask questions (the questioning pedagogy) requires a school culture with an emphasis on true learning rather than simply on high grades (in other words, a mastery goal orientation). The feeling that their views and questions are important says to students that they are valued and unique (the key to belongingness). For a student to be motivated to ask questions and pursue answers, the questions and answers must have personal relevance (which is brought about through greater autonomy).

They lead only to obedience, acquiescence, and conformity, not to questioning, initiating, self-reliance, and critical thinking. Much of the reform efforts for American high schools rest in the realm of rigor; lip service is paid to relationships and relevance, but only as it serves rigor. Heath and progressive educators like those at EdVisions and the Big Picture Company are making the case that without relationships and relevance that lead to character and dispositional growth, rigor alone is meaningless and will not lead to successful and productive adults.
