Carolyn Cameron, one of the most open and progressive principals I have ever known (she was also my former boss), shared the following video regarding student expectations for school. The first point was that it was important to build relationships and know students as individuals. The nine other points are things that I really believe in, but it was great hearing it from a student perspective.
Although this is a video that will bring attention to a book that is being sold, I think that it is a great conversation starter with faculty and students. Interestingly enough, it was released around the same time the Jeff Bliss video was being shared. Perhaps a much more positive way to start the conversation not only on what students look for in the classroom, but also may give some thoughts on how to give students this voice and take action based on what they have said.
Student voice is important but it is essential that if we ask them to take the time to share their thoughts, that we also show progress in what they have asked.
