Manitoba School Improvement Project

The Manitoba School Improvement Program used to teach students about learning, including multiple intelligences, brain-based learning, learning styles, and emotional intelligence.

Students worked with teachers to have a voice in their own learning, and in the direction of their classroom. The program, which worked in three urban high schools, saw students – with the support of school administration – propose entirely new structures for giving students a say in classroom issues and directions.

The changes they reported facing included cross-grade groupings, and student training in facilitation and leadership skills.
