Description

This project documents the high school student experiences in a diverse choral classroom by exploring what factors contribute to student thriving. Adapted in this project for high school choral students, Dr. Laurie Schreiner’s Thriving Quotient survey (2015) quantitatively measured student perceptions. For qualitative descriptions, 35 one-on-one student interviews, interviews with the teacher, and classroom observations were conducted to probe into personal and collective narratives. Geneva Gay’s articulation of culturally-responsive teaching guided the theoretical framework of how teaching affects thriving. Results suggest that focusing on a sense of community and family positively impact student thriving in a diverse classroom.
