Teachers Teaching Teachers #158 – 07.01.09 – Inside Youth Voices: What does the site do well? What does it not need to do?
Join three of the facilitators of Youth Voices, Paul Allison, Susan Ettenheim, and Chris Sloan in a conversation with each other and five other teachers who have recently begun to use the site (or plan to soon):
- Carolyn Stanley, a tech integrator in Conneticut
- Sherry Edwards, an English teacher Washington
- Fred Haas, an English teacher in a school near Boston
- Jennifer Bahle (now Razor), an English teacher in Omaha
- Michael Dodes, a librarian in the Bronx.
As we begin to plan for the coming fall semester, we talk about some of the things that went well, some of our common goals, some things we don’t agree with, some new possibilities in our work together.

These videos also help fill in some of our thinking:
