This article describes how a middle school teacher nurtures student voice by teaching students to articulate their views on topics they care about. The author describes an assignment during distance learning that asked students to look at the ways in which intersectionality and systemic issues played out in a topic they cared about.

Issues of race and equity were at the forefront of many students’ minds. Giving students the tools and a safe place to develop their opinions and strengthen their voice is critical to help young people process and contribute positively to the national conversation about racism.
