Students’ aspirations can drive a school toward exciting new goals, but for that to happen educators must take the time to truly listen to their students. When students know they’re being heard, they develop self-worth, engage meaningfully in their own academic success, and become purposeful in their educations.
In this webinar, author Russ Quaglia will present a blueprint for enacting a successful partnership between educators and students. From asking the right questions and understand how to build from the answers you get, to engaging students in decision-making and improvement-related processes, Quaglia will share strategies grounded in his Aspirations Framework to guide students toward achieving their full potential.
