Student Voice Matters

By Youth on Board
June 18, 2015

This national campaign, launched by Youth on Board, encourages schools to give students opportunities to provide feedback on teacher practice and classroom culture in order to improve teaching and build student-teacher relationships. The site includes a dynamic gallery of students sharing why they feel student voice matters in the classroom as well as a video highlighting the experiences of teachers and students who were involved in the campaign in Boston that started the work. It also includes tips for schools to set up a photo booth to document the importance of student voice and build support for the campaign. The site also features resources for schools that want to begin soliciting constructive feedback from students on classroom management and culture, subject instruction, learning styles, and engagement for informal formative assessment of and/or begin a campaign to mandate student feedback as part of formal teacher evaluations.
