StEP: Student-Educator Partnerships

Awardees: Natalie Owen (HGSE) & Kathleen Jarman (HGSE)

Summary: In order to leverage the strengths of small school communities, we want to bring together teachers and students for conversation around how classroom practices can be relevant and engaging for all students. The funding we receive in this round will sponsor teachers in rural spaces to host lunch for a small group of students. We will support teachers with resources on productive student-teacher partnerships, including norm-setting for productive collaboration around classroom possibilities and including diverse student identities in the conversation.
