Biografia

Nancie descobriu seu amor pelos livros ainda criança, enquanto estava internada com febre reumática em um hospital. Ela ensina a matéria de inglês por meio de uma oficina de redação e leitura, uma inovação que ela descreveu pela primeira vez em seu livro “In The Middle” (as primeiras duas edições do livro venderam meio milhão de cópias). Os alunos escolhem os assuntos sobre os quais querem escrever e os livros que querem ler. Como a estrutura da aula impulsiona a capacidade e a perseverança dos alunos, todos os anos seus estudantes leem em média 40 livros, abrangendo 14 gêneros diferentes. Ao mesmo tempo, eles escrevem em média 21 redações, abrangendo 13 gêneros. Devido ao incentivo e ao apoio fornecido por Nancie, muitos de seus alunos tornaram-se autores publicados.

Estou convencida de que o ensino de idiomas é uma das melhores carreiras existentes: exige tempo e energia, mas é significativa, recompensadora e interessante. Consigo demonstrar o que é possível, ensinar o que é útil, estabelecer condições que convidam ao engajamento, apoiar o duro trabalho da leitura e escrita literárias, e desfrutar dos tipos de relações com adolescentes que foi o que me trouxe para a educação.

Em 1990, Nancie fundou o Center for Teaching and Learning, uma escola primária e de ensino fundamental demonstrativa e sem fins lucrativos, criada com a finalidade de desenvolver e disseminar métodos. A escola busca ativamente crianças vindas de famílias carentes para fazer parte de um corpo discente que representa uma diversidade de históricos socioeconômicos e níveis de habilidade. 97% de seus alunos formados matriculou-se em universidades.
