Student sample advocacy card
This sample advocacy card helps students advocate for themselves to their teachers.
The first column asks students to identify what helps them learn in the classroom, such as sitting with positive people, deep breathing, and providing duplicate notes.
The second column asks students to identify what helps them learn on assignments and tests, such as extended time limits and advanced notice.
The third column asks students to list comments they can practice and say to their teachers to advocate for themselves, such as, “Because I’m struggling with my ability to focus, could I submit my assignment in two days?”
