When I decided to write an article with the title Unsilence Students’ Voices I thought long and hard about using “Unsilence”! Every time I typed that word the text editor underlined it in red reminding me that it was not a “real” word. Was I rebelling against that red underlining? Maybe! I decided that it expressed what I wanted to communicate and so I went with it. I’ve now had the article published in the journal of the California Mathematics Council, the CMC ComMuniCator:
