Student voice happens in so many ways throughout schools. Research shows “enculturated behaviors” are another way they happen.
Enculturated behaviors are the attitudes shared throughout a group of adults and students that form the culture of a school. They are obvious in the ways students and teachers anticipate each others’ actions and reactions. Both parties—students and teachers—demonstrate enclurated behavior in order to inadvertently manipulate the others’ responses.
This is student voice at work.
