Learning Goals
SS/L-18ITEB 2011 STUDENT VOICE MODULE
 
  • In this session participants are learning how to
  • explain student voice and why it is important to
    learning
  • access support and resources for Student Voice
    through colleagues, the board and the ministry
  • invite students to co-create environments that

    information for improving their learning.

16
Essential Questions
SS/L-18ITEB 2011 STUDENT VOICE MODULE
 
  • What is the Student Voice Initiative?
  • How might I invite students to co-create
    environments that promote student engagement in
    their learning?

17
Making Connections Organizer
SS/L-18ITEB 2011 STUDENT VOICE MODULE
Making Connections Session Learning Goals   Note how your learning in each part of the session connects with the learning goal(s). Sample Success Criteria
We are learning to explain student voice and why it is important to student learning.     explain student voice and its connection to student engagement identify strategies to invite students to join the conversation about what engages them in their learning give examples of ways students have indicated helps strengthen their sense of belonging (classroom and school) and participation give examples of ways student voice connects to either overall curriculum expectations and/or four pillars of learning Community Culture and Caring, Pathways, Literacy and Numeracy
We are learning to access support and resources for Student Voice through colleagues, the board and the Ministry     list the Student Voice resources know where to access the Student Voice supports and resources Navigate the Student Voice website to access related Ministry resources Network with colleagues
We are learning how to invite students to co-create environments that promote student engagement?     Support students in using SpeakUp in a Box for them to provide important information for improving their learning Incorporate initiatives/structures into the classroom that promote student voice and provide students with opportunities to be partners in their own learning. Design tasks and use strategies such as Focused Dialogue, Final Word and other equitable structures for the emergence of different viewpoints and voices.

Building Inclusion Anchor Activity Debrief
SS/L-18ITEB 2011 STUDENT VOICE MODULE
 
  • Strategy Partner Introduction
  • Instructions
  • Choose a partner from table group. Decide who
    will be the interviewer and who will be
    interviewed. For one minute, the interviewer
    will tell his/her partner all the things he/she
    does not know about his/her partner, including
    why she/he is taking the Student Voice Module and
    something interesting from the Anchor Activity.
    The partner being interviewed then responds for
    two minutes giving information they are
    comfortable sharing.
  • Partners switch roles and repeat the strategy.
  • Reform into a table group. Each set of partners
    introduce one another to the table group and
    share their partners reasons for the taking this
    module and one thing they found interesting from
    the Anchor Activity. Continue until everyone has
    been introduced to the table group by their
    partners.

it is a safe/respectful place for students to
express their voices?

Student Engagement is a measure of the extent to
which students

    activities
  • identify with and value schooling outcomes

    learning

This and the following slides draw upon the
research of Dr. Doug Willms , with permission.

ideas on how to respect all students voices and

Forums in 2009. In 2011, the focus for
discussion was student councils and how they can
strengthen engagement academically among all
students and hear all students voices. A
diversity of students selected from a range of
destinations and levels of engagement, grades,
gender, non-traditional leaders, those on student
students council or not, student trustees, and
MSAC members).

    support student learning of life skills (e.g.
    leadership, teamwork, communication).
  • 3. Ensure the learning environment is inclusive
    socially (i.e. opportunities to talk about issues
    such as mental health, bullying, racism,
    diversity, inclusion)
  • 4. Ensure the learning environment is inclusive
    academically (i.e. teachers know the individual
    students and their learning styles, what helps
    and hinders their learning).
  • 5. Build on the SpeakUp to ensure all students
    feel welcomed and empowered in their schools.
  • 6. Provide students with the opportunity to give
    feedback on their learning experience in order to
    achieve success.

    voice.

    success criteria
  • Seeking and giving feedback
  • Adapting teaching as a result of feedback from
    learners
  • Planning interventions that deliberately
    encourage mastery of these intentions
  • Visible learning involves students
  • Being committed to and open to learning
  • Being involved in setting challenging learning
    intentions and success criteria

Types of Engagement
SS/L-18ITEB 2011 STUDENT VOICE MODULE
 
8) Young people-initiated, shared decisions with
adults Projects or programs are initiated by
young people and decision-making is shared
between young people and adults. These projects
empower young people while at the same time
enabling them to access and learn from the life
experience and expertise of adults. 7) Young
people-initiated and directed Young people
initiate and direct a project or program. Adults
are involved only in a supportive role. 6)
Adult-initiated, shared decisions with young
people Projects or programs are initiated by
adults but the decision-making is shared with the
young people. 5) Consulted and informed Young
people give advice on projects or programs
designed and run by adults. The young people are
informed about how their input will be used and
the outcomes of the decisions made by adults. 4)
Assigned but informed Young people are assigned
a specific role and informed about how and
why they are being involved. 3) Tokenism Young
people appear to be given a voice, but in fact
have little or no choice about what they do or
how they participate. 2) Decoration Young
people are used to help or "bolster" a cause in a
relatively indirect way, although adults do not
pretend that the cause is inspired by young
people.   1) Manipulation Adults use young
people to support causes and pretend that the
causes are inspired by young people.   Adapted
from Hart, R. (1992)
