student voice in lesson planning

I’d like to hear from schools and teachers who have involved students in lesson planning


To what extent can students help steer how the lessons are taught?

What are the benefits- do they go beyond extra engagement, or it that enough it itself?


What methods do teachers use, for example:

·         Surveys of how lessons have been taught to inform future lesson plans

·         Emails to classes before lessons to state what the learning outcomes need to be and asking how they’d like to arrive at them

·         Asking students to generate resources that will then be used to teach the whole class with

·         Asking students to write lesson plans- and perhaps deliver them to model the practice they like


Email me if you can help or point me at case studies and research
