Involve Students in Decision-Making

When students are involved in making decisions, an increase in collaboration and ownership of learning occurs. Additionally, students feel valued and believe their input matters. Three tips to support decision making include:

  1. Setting Expectations РAt the beginning of the year, build a set of expectations created by both teacher and students. 
  2. Communicate Clearly – Discuss which decisions can be a collaborative effort and which are non-negotiable.
  3. Encourage  Participation РBe sure all students feel included in the process.
