Youth voices bringing education research to life

As a journalist and documentarian of adolescent learning, I interview students themselves about what challenges and inspires their growth and development. In our books, workshops, and presentations, their voices illuminate important research on key issues and opportunities:

  • College and workplace access and transitions
  • Student motivation and mastery
  • Transformative school designs and structures
  • Social, emotional, and academic development

My new book, Fires in Our Lives, is out now — take a look!
