Student empowerment: 02M413

These resources, developed by School of the Future, layout the various strategies and structures the school uses to empower students and develop their metacognitive skills. These strategies include promoting discourse, providing students with choice and voice in a number of areas, and leadership techniques to develop the structures to grow and sustain these practices. Each packet of resources is dedicated to a specific focus: math, ELA and history, and leadership.
