How Positioning Shapes Opportunities for Student Agency in Schools
York, Adam; Kirshner, Ben
Teachers College Record, v117 n13 p103-118 2015
This chapter shows how student positioning by adults shapes opportunities for students to learn collective systemic agency including practices such as organizing others, developing a systemic analysis, and taking action in complex institutions, such as schools. We argue that these learning opportunities are expanded when education professionals look beyond curricular experiences and attend to how students are positioned through discourse in the broader context of the school.
