DPS STUDENT VOICE & LEADERSHIP
Denver Public Schools Student Voice and Leadership programs transform all DPS students and school cultures by nurturing the whole child, supporting youth-adult partnerships and leveraging community assets. We help students and teachers discover their core strengths and apply those strengths in real world experiences.
Critical Thinking & Problem Solving
Students consider a variety of approaches to produce innovative solutions.
Students demonstrate skills in active listening, clear writing, and persuasive presentation.
Students work with their peers, assume leadership roles, resolve conflicts, and manage projects.
Students use teacher feedback to monitor and direct their own learning, both in and out of the classroom.
Developing a Learning Mindset
Students feel a sense of belonging and the motivation to persist through their school work.
