Turning the Tables: Change is Student Led
So often today, we as adults want things done a certain way. We unintentionally put up barriers for our students that result in lack of student ownership. If you want things in your community and school to change for the positive, then we have to recognize that the power lies within our students. When we can empower our students, that's when the real positive change happens. Participants will leave this presentation with the knowledge and ideas to help empower their students to positively change their school and community culture.
