  • This thinking routine and process can be used by adults or children alike. It can be done in a staff meeting to develop shared understandings and a language of agency or with a student-based learning community.
  • Individually, in pairs, or as a group reflect on your ideas, experiences and understandings about agency and sites of agency within a learning community. Use critical and reflective thinking to analyze and explore the various layers of agency from what it looks like through to what its foundations are.

Having learners (whether they be teachers, students, or parents) go through this process, ideas, perspectives, biases and beliefs about agency can be uncovered and explored constructively, thus helping to create a situation where a shared vision for the students and their voice and choice in learning can begin to develop.

This process helps uncover beliefs and biases about student agency that could help or hinder its implementation.
