Seeking Diversity is the result of watching, listening to, and learning from adolescents

Seeking Diversity is the result of watching, listening to, and learning from adolescents. It is also about a teacher, a learner engaged in the process of coming to know herself as a reader and writer in her own classroom. It is a chronicle of apprenticeship, where the students do astonishing things as readers and writers because their teacher believes they can, because she expects them to, and because she is right there beside them-reading, writing, questioning, thinking, learning, and growing.

Introduction Much has been written over time about children and adolescents who are so much troubled by anxieties and fears that they are totally put off their stroke. The conceptualization of these anxieties and fears, and the ideas about their origins, have changed over time.

However, there are almost always exceptions.

For five decades this idea prevailed, and influenced work in linguistics, psychology and cognitive science. However, there are almost always exceptions.

Seeking Diversity is the result of watching, listening to, and learning from adolescents. It is also about a teacher, a learner engaged in the process of coming to know herself as a reader and writer in her own classroom. It is a chronicle of apprenticeship, where the students do astonishing things as readers and writers because their teacher believes they can, because she expects them to, and because she is right there beside them-reading, writing, questioning, thinking, learning, and growing.

Linda Rief takes the philosophies and ideas of Atwell, Romano, Graves, Murray, Calkins, and the Goodmans and makes them her own. She adapts them to her classroom, her students, her style, her constraints and invites other teachers to do the same- stretch the ideas, make them theirs, but above all, trust the students.

Seeking Diversity is organized chronologically, following Linda and her students from September through June. Teachers will find especially helpful: organization techniques-materials, the room, and expectations ways of using life experiences and literature to immerse the students in meaningful writing and reading evaluation beliefs and techniques that focus on process as well as product and on self-evaluation over outside assessment portfolios from a range of students-what's in them, who chooses, and what they show us a new look at art as an integral part of students' literacy an appendix filled with handouts for both students and parents numerous lists of best-liked books for individualized reading, reading aloud, and reading together.

Great Book!!

If you're looking for the perfect book for a new English teacher, this is it. But it's also great if you're looking for inspiration yourself -- and by no means do you need to be a middle school teacher to benefit from it.
My copy of this book is falling apart, because I have fled to it more frequently in times of woe than any other text on teaching. Nancie Atwell's In the Middle is also close to my heart, but Rief's book is more direct and less overwhelming and so more useful in emergencies.
I teach 11th and 12th grade English, but never has this kept Seeking Diversity from being useful, even though Rief is describing her middle school classes. The environment that helps students reach their potential is the same at almost all levels, regardless of who your students are, where they're from, or how old they are. (A qualifier: I know nothing about elementary education, and so won't presume to speak to that.)
If you're looking for lots of theory and post-structuralist analysis, this is the wrong book. But if you're after nuts and bolts, and lots of them, then Seeking Diversity is what you want. It's inspiring, empowering, and tremendously useful.

In an educational world that demands conformity it is a rare treat to experience a teacher who celebrates the diversity and the gifts that each student brings to the classroom. Linda Rief knows the adoloscent mind, but more importantly she understands the heart of these ever changing students. The book opens with a realistic look at what her classroom is like - real voices of real students trying to find thenselves through reading and writing. It is the generous use of the students voices that made this book such an inspiration to me. In reading this book I was struck by the rigor in the curriculum. There is an abundance of reading and writing going on all of the time. The real difference is that the subjects and the books are chosen by the students. Engaging adoloscents with choice, time, responsibility and accountability all show her masterful understanding of this age group. She also reads to her students often and writes with them. It is this mentoring that I found to be the most valuable for me. Linda Rief is a writer showing others how she writes and struggles. It is this realness that adoloscents continue to crave in school. She is the true mentor and in her chapters on writing and reading she lays out a clear theoritical foundation for why she teaches this way. Once I read this there was no going back. In the chapters on reading and writing linda puts in many expamples of student work - and it is these examples that truely show the diversity that is smothered in many language arts classrooms. Linda Rief has a voice that speaks to the middle school teacher. She is in a real school and teaches real students. Hers is the voice of experience. This is very evident in the chapter where she explains that her students sometimes do read the same book or write on the same subject. Her understanding of the balance needed for students and for the curricular demands of the profession should pull in even the most reluctant middle school teacher. But always the balance is tipped in favor of the students need for choice, for exploration, for understanding, for real mentoring, and for the goal of being a reader and a writer for life. The book also contains a wealth of material in the appendices. These materials are a starting point for those teachers who see writing and reading as a mentoring. This is a must book for new teachers and a perfect gift for those teachers with more experience. This is a book that changed the way I teach and has helped me to look for the diversity and the heart of the adoloscent mind.
