We Hear You! Student Voice for School Improvement

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

Though student voice has become a familiar term, it remains far from business as usual in schools due to its counter-normative roots and implementation challenges. Learn eight strategies we have found effective and three common shortcomings.

In this deep dive, participants will:
-Reflect on and refine their current practices
-Engage in the collaborative generation of new ideas
-Participate in a crowdsourced simulation to authentically engage with our students and crowdsourcing platform while seeing the thinking of their Deep Dive peers.

Student voice has been the catalyst in our 12 percent increase in overall graduation rates, including 30+ percent increases for our Black and Hispanic students, and a 97 percent increase in college-level course enrollment over the past five school years in our 3000 student public high school in Minnesota. Join us to authentically engage with students and peers to bring student voice to life!
