Introduction: This lesson plan is an evaluation of Student-Adult Partnerships that should be conducted with students and adults. It can be used in any capacity by any group that wants an honest, thorough examination of currently existing Student-Adult Partnerships within its class or school.

Goal: When this evaluation is complete, students and adults should be able to…

  • Acknowledge the wide-ranging factors affecting student engagement through Student-Adult Partnerships
  • Recommend specific changes to Student-Adult Partnerships activities

Time: Depends on scope, ability, and interest of group

Materials: Copies of evaluation for each group member as applicable

Space: N/A

Considerations: There are many variations on how to conduct the following evaluation. It can be facilitated as a whole class activity with pairs or a small group, or done as an individual examination. The focus of the evaluation should be a finite center of Student-Adult Partnerships, such as a specific program within an agency, or the agency as a whole; a specific classroom, or the school as a whole. This evaluation was designed to explore every major factor within Student-Adult Partnerships, and should be acknowledged as a wide-ranging tool for class or school growth.




  1. Determine, before the lesson, who, how, and what this assessment will be used for. Consider whether this is simply an exercise, or an actual assessment. Before you go straight through all the questions, review each section and determine whether the appropriate people are present to answer all the questions.
  1. Distribute the Student Engagement Conditions Assessment handout to participants and begin the evaluation.
  1. When finished, review answers and determine next steps. You might close by reviewing other places in society where Student-Adult Partnerships might be engaged, such as classes, clubs, curriculum committees, hiring boards, research teams, district offices, or state education agencies. Charge participants to continue their analysis, and thank them for attending.
