How does Teach the Teacher work?

Students lead collaborative conversations with their school staff about how students and educators can work together to address a school issue.

The program supports students at your school to:

  • Choose and research an issue, including gathering and analysing data
  • Plan and deliver a professional learning session for educators  
  • Create a plan of collaborative action to address the chosen issue
  • Share actions, learnings and impact with the whole school community
  • Embed this process of student-teacher collaboration into the school
Teach the Teacher is the single most transformative flipping of pedagogy I’ve seen in 40 years of education.
