Ganadora de 2015

Biografía

Nancie descubrió su pasión por los libros cuando estuvo internada en un hospital por fiebre reumática en su niñez. Ella enseña inglés como un taller de escritura y lectura, una innovación que describió por primera vez en su libro “In The Middle” (las dos primeras ediciones del libro vendieron medio millón de copias). Los alumnos eligen los temas sobre los que escriben y los libros que leen. Ya que la estructura de la clase fomenta la capacidad y la energía, cada año sus alumnos son capaces de leer en promedio 40 libros que representan 14 géneros. Al mismo tiempo, logran elaborar un promedio de 21 escritos en 13 géneros. Debido a su incentivo y apoyo, muchos de sus alumnos se han convertido en autores con publicaciones.

Estoy convencida de que la enseñanza de lengua y literatura es una de las mejores profesiones, que demanda tiempo y energía, pero que a su vez tiene un gran significado, y es meritoria e interesante. Puedo demostrar lo que es posible, enseñar lo que es útil, establecer condiciones que motivan la participación, apoyar el arduo trabajo de la lectura y escritura literaria, y disfrutar de los diferentes vínculos que se entablan con los adolescentes que son los que me impulsaron a la educación en primer lugar.

En 1990, Nancie fundó el Centro para la Enseñanza y el Aprendizaje, una escuela de demostración sin fines de lucro para niños y adolescentes de 5 a 14 años, creada con el fin de desarrollar y difundir métodos. La escuela busca de manera activa a niños de familias de bajos recursos para formar parte del alumnado que representa a una diversidad de contextos socioeconómicos y niveles de capacidad. El 97 % de sus graduados se ha inscrito en la universidad.
