  1. What does it mean to have a voice? What are some ways you can develop your voice?
  2. Why is it important for students to have a voice today? (ex. school, work, home)?
  3. What does your school/school board do to ensure students are heard? How can they do better?
  4. In what ways have you felt that your own voice has been amplified (school or other)?
  5. How might teachers help amplify the voices of students regularly?
  6. How can we ensure student voice remains meaningful, positive, and productive?

*The same questions will be used for the Slow Chat all month long. We recommend classes spend time answering the questions ahead of time so time during the chat can be spent liking tweets, retweeting, quoting tweets in reply, and collaborating with others.

Tweet and Talk Expert on Panel: Grayson McKinney

Grayson McKinney (@GMcKinney2) is a 5th-Grade Teacher in Troy, Michigan and the co-author of two books…The Expert Effect: A Three-Part System to Break Down the Walls of Your Classroom and Connect Your Students to the World as well as The Expert Expedition: A Classroom Companion to The Expert Effect…the former for teachers and the latter for students. Grayson is a passionate educator who uses innovative practices to deepen learning, enhance creativity, and create opportunities for students that otherwise would not be possible. To him, creativity for the sake of creativity is an essential gift to give students. It is not our job to prepare them for this unknown future, but rather to help them prepare themselves for whatever they may face. He has a Master’s Degree in Educational Studies and an Education Specialist Degree in School Leadership from Oakland University and loves blogging, presenting at conferences, and connecting with other educators from around the world.
