Brief Session Description: Discover the power of leveraging student voice to increase engagement and learning. Unpack the research that shows that there is no "average" student, that students are more than just numbers, and that changing a context or a perspective matters. Learn ways to collect student input and increase student investment in all aspects of the classroom. This session will also draw from the work of Mountain Brook Schools and our journey to discover the power of student voice over the last two years. Increasing a student's ownership and investment in their own learning and the school community at large yields incredible results.
