Amplify Student Voices Through Expression-Driven Teaching

This workshop will introduce you to Expression-Driven Teaching, an inclusive facilitation method that shifts the conversation away from, "How can I get students to talk?" to, "How can I create welcoming, brave spaces where every young person can express who they are and discover who they want to become?" You will learn practical techniques to facilitate different forms of oral expression, such as debate, storytelling, poetry, presentation, self-advocacy and listening, to create active, equitable classrooms that drive social and emotional learning. Oral literacy is key to cultivating a kinder, more thoughtful society with people who can speak clearly and listen deeply, so this workshop will help you prepare your students to be ready to speak, even when it is scary.
