Prioritizing Student Voice and Engagement

Limited Capacity filling up

According to a national sample of YouthTruth student responses, only 1 in 2 secondary students enjoy coming to school most of the time. And less than half feel that what they’re learning in class helps them outside of school. Part of engaging students is giving them a voice in their instruction, and a role in school improvement. How can a school or district systematically empower student-driven ideas, questions, and goals? How can we integrate student voice authentically, honestly, and proactively? In this session, you’ll hear from a school network leader, a teacher, and High Tech High students about how they move from feedback to action. We’ll provide a model for analyzing student feedback data, and guiding productive conversations when the results are surprising. You’ll have the chance to sink your teeth into a sample scenario, share your experiences and insights, and leave with resources to increase student engagement and ownership.
