  • Rehumanizing assessment through story allows us to tap into deeper learning, build empathy, and demonstrate cultural expansiveness while gathering evidence of the critical competencies.
  • When students are the storytellers, they develop agency.
  • Storytelling in the classroom can range from micro moments to macro projects, and capture evidence of the standards as well as metacognition and reflection.
  • Change requires leaders to become storytellers to model the vulnerability of making mistakes and trying something new.
  • The stories we tell ourselves determine our mindset.
  • If you live to please others you’ll lie to yourself, but when you tell yourself the truth, you’ll find your inner peace, even if that doesn’t make everyone happy.
