Interactive learning

Including student voice in the lesson allows additional avenues of student engagement and connection to the material.  When students are able to see that their voice matters in the learning process, they engage in the content more readily.  Students are also able to see their words and ideas put in front of an authentic audience- their classmates- which supports communication skill building alongside content creation.
