Student Voice in Learning

When schools think of student voice, they often think of student representation on student councils, leadership teams, and even school boards. In those models, students learn to interact effectively with adults, represent their peers, and take responsibility for school-wide decisions. But what happens when student leaders take that experience back to classrooms? This session will explore the ways in which a focus on student leadership can shift to a focus on student voice in learning. Participants will identify the links between their own student leadership systems and greater student agency in the classroom.
