Supporting SoundOut

Over the last six years I have worked with almost two hundred schools across the United States, grades kindergarten through twelve. Thousands of students, teachers, principals, counselors and paraprofessionals, as well as community youth workers and parents have participated in hours and hours of workshops and trainings, action planning and speeches. We have explored dozens of topics, including student voice, student engagement, roles for students in school decision-making, students as classroom researchers, student-written classroom curricula, student assessment of learning, teaching and environments, and so on. The website has become widely-acknowledged as a pivotal resource for research and teaching about student voice.
