History of Transformative Student Voice
Shelley, Carlos, and Ben formed Critical Civic Inquiry Research Group (CCI), a collaborative research team.
The Spencer Foundation and Hewlett Foundation awarded CCI grants for the development of the Measure of Youth Policy Arguments (MYPA). MYPA is a formative and summative assessment tool for teaching students how to prepare and deliver compelling, evidence-based policy arguments. This led to a partnership with Denver Public Schools (DPS) and Student Voice and Leadership (SVL), which expanded the scale of youth voice in Colorado and New Jersey.
Hewlett Foundation enabled the expansion of student voice and socio-political development in Denver-Metro schools. The CCI curriculum for action civics was completed and used in schools.
