We want students to be seen, heard and valued. Giving students a voice in decision making, learning choices and community building helps us achieve these goals. We have classroom meetings each morning and afternoon to build student voice into our day. Data shows that students who speak once are more likely to do so again. Morning Meetings promote student voice and lead to more productive and collaborative experiences throughout the day.
Another way we foster students’ voice is though Student-Led Conferences and presentations of learning that allow students to own their learning and showcase their knowledge while working on 21st century skills. This student voice is the very essence of Thrive culture.
