That Reminds Me of My New Boy Year: Using Stories to Strengthen a Peer Leadership Program for Grade 11 Boys

  • Boys and Stories (2018-19)

This action research project focused on Grade 11 peer leaders at Woodberry Forest School. The project was designed around a belief that these peer leaders, each of whom was working with five or six new students, would be able to more effectively share important information about school culture, rules, and expectations if they worked to improve their skills as storytellers. This belief informed the research question: How does personal storytelling strengthen the peer leadership skills of Grade 11 boys?
