ICLE Publications Teach Up! Empowering Educators through Relationships, Rigor, and Relevance


Teach Up! by Venola L. Mason shows the power of positive teacher-student relationships and high academic expectations to help ALL students reach their full potential. “Teaching up” is about adopting a growth&emdash;based mindset and iterative practice to cultivate meaningful learning opportunities—the ones that set kids up for success beyond school, as talented and confident human beings. Building on the ICLE Relationships, Rigor, and Relevance model, author Venola L. Mason, an ICLE associate partner, provides educators with strategies proven to help ALL students excel at rigorous tasks while staying engaged in the classroom. To support these strategies, Teach Up! examines the importance of social and emotional learning (SEL), the impact of childhood trauma, and the influence of classroom environment. The book then shifts to presenting step-by-step practices for building relationships and increasing the level of rigor and relevance in instructional tasks that may be applied in any classroom, regardless of subject matter or grade level. These practical tools will help students become more socially adept, better able to solve complex problems, and strong and joyful lifelong learners&emdash;all crucial components of life success.
