Topic: Continuum of Voice



Big Question:

Why is learner voice critical in developing agency?



We use the Q1, A1 format with questions:


    1. What does learner voice sound like and look like in your classroom?
    2. Why is it important for learners to have a voice in how they learn?
    3. What types of activities can teachers initiate with learners to create authentic learner voice?
    4. How can learners contribute to the design of lessons, projects, and assessments?
    5. How do we help every learner advocate for themselves?
    6. How can we guide learners to lead change in and outside of school?
