Shadow A Student

What Is It

Walk in the shoes of a student for an entire school day and reflect on the experience

Try It

Recruit multiple participants (e.g., administrators, teachers, parents, other students) to walk in the shoes of a student for an entire start-to-finish school day.

Discuss It

In person or online, dive into these essential questions:

  • What is your overall reaction?
  • Using your school’s profile of a graduate, which student experiences help build these competencies, which are irrelevant, and which are detrimental? How can you do more of what’s beneficial, and minimize what’s damaging?
  • How can you share these perspectives with your entire school community?
