Fostering Student Agency: The 10 Questions Framework in Your Library
Learn about the 10 Questions for Young Changemakers Framework, developed by Harvard's Democratic Knowledge Project (DKP), and the many ways it can be used in school libraries to help students develop successful—equitable, effective, and self-protective—civic agency in this digital age. Chaebong Nam of DKP will discuss the rationale behind the Framework, and Laura Gardner, a practicing middle school librarian, will share specific examples of the 10 Questions in practice with students.

- Implementation strategies for learning practices based on the Framework, from guided reading, to media literacy activities, to diverse civic engagement programs
- How to collaborate with other educators to implement the 10 Questions in your learning community
