Book Chapter
The chapter offers advice on teaching strategy. Her two main expectations are the decentering of authority and the cultivation of free expressive voice. She states that she wants students to leave her class understanding a little more about how their perspectives intermingle with others. She wants students to realize they have voices. To do this, the author tells them that she respects them as intelligent, thoughtful and wise human beings and that she wants to hear what they have to say.
