Voice and Poverty Brains in the Classroom

Students need a voice in their classroom.  It provides validation.

    **Affirm and gently express the differences between fact and opinion.
    **Teach them how to advocate for themselves.
    **Encourage students to take risks by speaking up appropriately for what means something to them such as taking on a school or community issue.
     **Allowing them to express their identity and culture.

What are ways you give your students voice in the classroom?
