Toward a Mutual Value Theory
1. self-value – both students and teachers value themselves highly
2. perceived self-value—both consider themselves to be highly valued by others
3. other-value – both value each other highly
4. course-value – both value the course highly
Since 2007, the author has applied this theory to her classroom teaching and has received overwhelmingly positive feedback. Students describe her courses as motivating, engaging, enjoyable, respectful, and empowering. Based on both theory and personal teaching experiences, Teachers and Students as Co-Learners: Toward a Mutual Value Theory will help readers develop a deeper understanding of learning, re-ignite their enthusiasm, and, most importantly, create powerful teaching and learning in the classroom.

Meaning of Other-value
Other-value refers to the value that one assigns to other people. Other-value answers questions such as “How do I view the other as a person?” “Is he someone important?” “Is he worth talking to?” “Is he worth my effort to know, to hang out with, to befriend, to listen to, and to be trusted?” Depending on who is the valuer and the valuee, other-value in the classroom setting can be divided into three different types: student other-value for teachers, student other-value for peers, and teacher other-value for students (see Table 7.1)
