For my final post, I'd like to share more about one way that we can focus on student voice to impact the growth of our students and bring to light the issues that they care about in a way that offers them.
As librarians we talk a lot about “safe space” - equity for all students and their individual needs. Providing opportunities for student voice has always been an important mission in my library. This year it manifested in a group slam poem - I coach the slam team with an English teacher. The team competes in the Louder than a Bomb Youth Poetry Festival sponsored by MassLEAP.
