We’ve all been there: We’ve planned the greatest lesson. We’ve created the perfect project. And we’ve stood before our students awaiting their excitement and engagement. And there’s nothing quite like the excruciating silence when our students don’t respond the way we’d planned. What’s missing? How do we build student voice, choice, and ownership? In this interactive session, participants will explore strategies for nurturing and sustaining equitable student voice, choice, and ownership in their learning environments. Using authentic tools, resources, and craft knowledge from teachers and teacher-leaders, participants will brainstorm ways to transform their classes and schools into spaces where students “own the room.”
