Gretchen Brion-Meisels is a lecturer in education at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. Her research concerns improving school climate, examines school reform partnerships between students and adults, and uses Youth Participatory Action Research (YPAR). Just as student voice motivates Brion-Meisels’s scholarship, it similarly permeates her Partnering with Youth on Educational Research and Practice course. Students in the course engage in a variety of structured, active discussions. A close-knit classroom culture fosters an environment in which everyone is both a learner and a teacher.
