Growing Equity Together: Using Student Independent Projects and Improvement Science to Ensure Success for All Students

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Students need choice and independence in school so they can self-actualize and walk into successful futures in this complex world. These rigorous, personalized learning opportunities are all too rare, and our most vulnerable young people are least likely to have these opportunities. Students and staff at Eagle Rock, along with a cohort of schools across the country, are using improvement science to address this problem together. In this workshop, we will explore concepts of equity, deeper learning, and improving equity through rigorous student independent projects. You’ll hear examples of successful school improvement strategies that were facilitated by students. This action-oriented workshop will engage you with concepts and tools that you can immediately implement in your class, school, or organization.
