Using Authentic Student Stories to Reach Students

What’s your story? Ask students this question, record, then share their responses can change lives. Using students' real stories is an effective way to engage and reach students emotionally. Student engagement is a predictor of learning and personal growth and development. If students aren’t engaged, they’re not learning. A film director, curriculum developer, and school-based counselor share creative ways to use student stories to engage and increase students’ social and emotional well-being.
