What are the school-based pedagogies and structures that set students on positive trajectories toward investment in learning, connectedness, and empowerment? The focus of this session is a case study of one community-based high school that has designed their curriculum around democratic and project-based learning, and has successfully promoted feeling of school connectedness and engagement. The discussion will focus on preliminary findings (i.e. longitudinal analysis, and qualitative interviews), and engage the audience in dialogue regarding potential implications.
