Amplify Student Voices: Building Confident Communicators

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This session will introduce you to Expression-Driven Teaching, an inclusive facilitation method that shifts the conversation away from, “How can I get students to talk?” to, “How can I create welcoming, brave spaces where every young person can express who they are and discover who they want to become?” You will learn practical and equitable techniques for how to teach and facilitate different forms of expression, such as storytelling, debate, poetry, presentation, self-advocacy and listening, to create active, inclusive classrooms that advance equity and social and emotional learning. Listen to examples and stories about what this looks like as a daily classroom practice and how to plan with expression in mind. Finally, you will have time to explore tools to support planning and facilitation, reflecting on opportunities in your classroom for students to be able to share their voices and believe their voice matters.
