How to Restore Agency for Students in our Classrooms

Through self-agency, students are able to move from an environment that is heavily teacher-directed to one where students self-regulate their own learning and behavior. Students develop the mindset that they are capable of controlling their own circumstances, executing plans, and effecting positive change for themselves. In this session we will explore how to create classrooms that restore agency to students through student conversations and rigorous learning while ensuring equitable instruction for all students. Participants will leave this session with practical tips for application in classrooms.
